The Roanoke Valley Transportation Planning Organization (RVTPO) is accepting comments on the proposed Amendment #5 to the Roanoke Valley Transportation Plan (RVTP). The amendment seeks to consider projects with increases in cost greater than 10%.

The current RVTP, as shown below, reflects the two subject projects covered under this amendment.

Jurisdiction Project Title Project Limits Project Description Est. Cost in Year of Expenditure

The table below lists the projects and the proposed cost estimate increases.
