Here’s your opportunity to weigh in on a transportation project list for the Fredericksburg region.

The federal government requires metropolitan planning organizations, such as FAMPO, to develop a long-range transportation plan that projects at least 20 years out. The plan must be updated at least every four years. It is now time to update the plan for our region, which includes the City of Fredericksburg and the counties of Stafford and Spotsylvania.

As part of the effort to develop a new transportation plan, FAMPO staff have worked with city and county planners to develop a draft list of transportation projects that are anticipated to receive federal funding through the year 2050. FAMPO is seeking public input on the proposed transportation project list.

Learn how to review the list and provide comments by visiting the Creating a New Transportation Plan webpage. Look for “participate now” and “happening now” sections highlighted in red. A video resource will show you how to review the project list. After you review the list, use the directions on the webpage to send FAMPO your concerns or expression of support. Comments can address individual projects, distribution of funding among different transportation modes or geographic areas, or any other related topic. Comments should be submitted by September 1, 2021, so that all FAMPO advisory committees can review them. However, comments will be collected through September 14, 2021. All comments will be considered by the FAMPO Policy Committee before they vote on whether to approve the project list.
