In April 2012, the Virginia General Assembly approved House Bill 599 (HB 599) which requires the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) to coordinate with the Commonwealth Transportation Board (CTB), the Department of Rail and Public Transportation (DRPT) and the Northern Virginia Transportation Authority (NVTA) to evaluate all significant transportation projects. The legislation requires:
- VDOT to rate and evaluate a minimum of 25 projects for congestion reduction and emergency evacuation; and
- Conduct the rating and evaluation process at least every 4 years.
