The Roanoke Valley Transportation Planning Organization (RVTPO) must provide public notice and opportunity to comment when amending the Constrained Long-Range Multimodal Transportation Plan (Long-Range Plan) which covers the 2016-2040 time period. For local governments and agencies to accept federal funds authorized by the Virginia Department of Transportation or the Virginia Department of Rail and Public Transportation, the RVTPO must add these project to the Long-Range Plan. Some projects have been awarded funding, others are still seeking funding.  Other regional priority projects may also be included in the Long-Range Plan.

The Long-Range Plan lists the projects that can be completed within the anticipated transportation funding available for the next 20 years in the Financially Constrained List of Projects. Other projects that are desired are listed in the Vision List of Projects, should additional funding become available.
