2 Discussion Items Six-Year Improvement Program (SYIP) Overview
Revenue Forecast and Outlook Impact of Revenue Forecast on FY SYIP Culpeper District Overview FY SYIP Development Process Project Outlook

3 Six-Year Improvement Program (SYIP)
Legal Basis § (7)(b) of the Code of Virginia requires the CTB to adopt a Six-Year Improvement Program (SYIP) of anticipated projects and programs by July 1 each year Based on the most recent revenue forecast and the Commonwealth’s debt policy Purpose Documents how available transportation funding is allocated among capital and maintenance projects by mode, program, project type, system, district or local government, and phase Guides the Commonwealth’s spending for transportation improvements over the following six-year period Just a little background on the Six-Year Improvement Program (SYIP) The Code of Virginia requires the CTB to adopt a six-year program of projects by July 1 each year; the amount of funds available to program in the SYIP are based on the most recent revenue forecast and any debt issuances and service as governed by the Commonwealth’s debt policy The SYIP illustrates how funding will be allocated among projects and is the overarching guide to how the Commonwealth will fund transportation improvements on the six-year period

4 Culpeper District SYIP Analysis (000s)
System FY10-15 FY10-15 Revised FY11-16 FY12-17 FY13-18 FY14-19 Interstate $1,812 $0 $8,130 $9,110 $7,397 $12,013 Primary $37,970 $40,273 $42,009 $297,4141 $258,828 $234,828 Secondary $40,086 $24,753 $21,475 $41,211 $32,609 $47,674 Urban $9,248 $5,984 $2,075 $23,348 $30,298 $30,104 Other2 $1,091 $5,891 $1,572 $2,057 $6,405 Total $90,208 $76,900 $73,689 $372,655 $331,189 $331,025 This table shows allocations in the Culpeper District portion of the SYIP over the last several programs The relatively reduced numbers in the FY Revised and FY programs reflect the effects of the Great Recession on transportation revenues The increase in FY is due the addition of the Route 29 Bypass project – approximately $230 million; in addition, allocations across all systems began to recover during that period 1 Includes $230 million allocated to Route 29 Bypass project after adoption of Final FY SYIP in June 2011 2 Includes safety, enhancements, rail, earmarks, etc.

5 Revenue Outlook FY financial outlook has been updated as part of the annual development of the Governor’s Budget Bill and Transportation’s Six-Year Financial Plan State and federal revenue forecasts for FY are down by total of $907.5 million Preliminary outlook for FY represents a six-year net reduction of $491.4 million from FY Moving to the revenue outlook (note - revenue forecasts are updated by the Department of Taxation) This outlook will provide the basis for available allocations to the FY SYIP update, in addition to the annual budget of the Commonwealth The state revenue adjustments represent reductions in anticipated revenues from state sources – for example, Sales Tax on Motor Fuels, Retail Sales and Use Tax collections, and several other revenue sources; the good news is that that anticipated revenues from the Motor Vehicles Sales and Use Tax are up slightly (although not enough to offset other reductions) The Federal revenue forecast is also down primarily due to less than anticipated federal gasoline tax collections Together, this translates to reduced allocations to VDOT’s Six-Year Improvement Program for the FY update

6 Impact of Revenue Reduction on FY 2015-2020 SYIP
Continue to work with existing priorities for SYIP development Continue to program remaining new state funding through the CTB Formula; allocations will no longer be sufficient to flow through the original State Construction Formula in FY Based on revised revenue estimates, propose to delay project schedules versus eliminating projects in the existing SYIP Balance the SYIP update with FY 2020 revenues to reduce impact of revenue reductions for FY CMAQ and RSTP funding is estimated to be reduced 2.1% in RSTP or $9.4 million and 2.3% in CMAQ or $6.8 million Recommend increasing Revenue Sharing allocation for each year of the SYIP to $184 million per year to meet increasing need What does this mean for the FY SYIP update? VDOT will continue to use the CTB’s Priorities - which I will go over on the next slide - to guide the programming of funds Also, state funds will continue to be programmed through the “CTB Formula”, which distributes funding to needed projects: Bridge reconstruction and rehabilitation High priority projects Interstate and primary pavement reconstruction (CCI < 60) PPTA projects Unpaved roads carrying more than 200 vehicles per day Smart roadway technology It is important to note that there will no longer be sufficient funds to flow through the State Construction Formula in the out years as had been anticipated in last year’s SYIP VDOT has also proposed to delay or extend project schedules rather than eliminating projects in the SYIP And, VDOT has recommended to increase the Revenue Sharing allocation to $184 million per year (up from $150 million in FY 2014)

7 CTB Priorities FY 2015-2020 SYIP
Fund deficits on project phases already under way Fund project phases under way as well as project phases that start in the current federal fiscal year Maximize use of federal funds to meet federal strategy Fund deficient bridges and paving projects Fund ADHS planned projects with an average of 4% of total federal maintenance and construction funds over the six years Fund deficient bridges with an average of 13% of total federal maintenance and construction funds over the six years Increase funding for preliminary engineering Support development of PPTAs Allocate funds consistent with how they will be obligated and expended Redirect inactive balances on projects As referenced on the last slide, each year, the CTB concurs with priorities to guide the development of the SYIP These are the priorities presented at this month’s CTB meeting and that will be used to guide programming in the FY SYIP

10 Funding the SYIP SYIP is funded with state and federal funds
Code of Virginia establishes policy for allocating funds for construction CTB Formula requires an amount not to exceed $500 million annually to be allocated: 25% to bridge reconstruction and rehabilitation; 25% to advancing high priority projects statewide; 25% to reconstructing deteriorated interstate and primary system pavements determined to have a Combined Condition Index (CCI) of less than 60; 15% to Public-Private Transportation Act (PPTA) projects 5% to unpaved roads carrying more than 200 vehicles per day; and 5% to smart roadway technology Amounts over $500 million go through the existing state construction formula Section of the Code of Virginia sets forth the policy and formulas for allocating highway construction funds among roadway systems (i.e., Interstate, primary, secondary) by construction district The CTB Formula provisions added to the Code by the General Assembly in 2012 and sunset in 2020; dedicates funds to certain purposes Any remaining construction funds above the $500 million dedicated to the CTB Formula go through the state construction formula; as Alison explained earlier, with the reduced revenue outlook, it is anticipated that no funds will be available to go through the state construction formula in the FY SYIP update

11 SYIP Development Principles
CTB priorities provide the overarching policy guidance to program the annual update of the SYIP Funding/budgeting priorities are used by VDOT to program projects Maximize federal funds Use project cash flow information Use current estimates and schedules Match allocations to project Fully fund PE by RW phase start Fully fund RW by CN phase start Fully fund CN phase in year of expected completion; state code requires projects be fully funded within 12 months of completion The CTB Priorities Alison discussed earlier provide another layer of policy guidance as to how transportation funds will be programmed In practice, we use funding and budgeting priorities to implement the CTB’s policy guidance and program projects

12 SYIP Development Principles
Special fund categories (RSTP, CMAQ, HSIP, TAP, Revenue Sharing) are allocated based on priorities specific to that program and federal and state requirements RSTP/CMAQ are allocated by MPOs according to their established processes (CMAQ is reviewed with CTB member) – not applicable to Charlottesville-Albemarle MPO NHPP and STP funds used for bridge program allocated based on priorities defined by structural deficiency and other factors HSIP funds allocated based on eligibility criteria related to safety issues and cost/benefit analysis TAP funds allocated based on the established CTB and MPOs processes Revenue Sharing funds allocated based on the established CTB process In addition, there are special fund sources – for example Transportation Alternatives, Revenue Sharing – that have allocation or award processes established by federal and state requirements. For example, Transportation Alternatives is a federal funding source that includes the former Safe Routes to School Program and the Enhancement Program; there is an annual application process associated with this program and projects receiving awards are programmed accordingly based on the outcome of the application process Revenue Sharing is a state funded program that also has an application process; the CTB establishes the policy guidance for this program and projects are awarded funds based on that specific policy guidance

13 Programming Projects in the SYIP
Funding in years two through six is estimated based on SYFP Amounts and types of funds available for SYIP development impact individual project funding Projects are funded based on their schedules/estimates Projects included in the SYIP come from a variety of sources: General Assembly Governor/Secretary CTB priorities MPO/PDC/Locality priorities Deficient bridges (S&BD) Deficient pavement (Maintenance) Crash/safety data (TED) Corridor studies (TMPD) STARS (TMPD) Plans (CLRP, VSTP, RLRPs) Continuation of existing SYIP projects The amount and types of funds available for the SYIP development depend on a number of factors – for example, the amount of state funds available may depend on the CTB’s decision to provide additional or less funding to the Revenue Sharing program, the state’s debt service requirements, growth in the Producer Price Index that impacts the amount of funding off the top for maintenance payments to localities, etc. The amount and types of federal funds available depend on factors at the federal level. And that in turn impacts the amount of state funds, as we are required to match all available federal funds with state dollars – off the top after maintenance is paid for. True to budgeting principles, projects are funded based on their estimates and schedules – we program funds when they are needed to fully fund each phase by the next phase and the entire project within one year of completion Projects can come from a variety of sources – priorities of the General Assembly, Governor, CTB; local and MPO priorities, and projects identified through various analyses of needs – deficient bridges, deficient pavements, crash and safety data, and various studies
