3 Office of Intermodal Planning & Investment Why a VTrans2035 Update? Legislative changes sought better coordination between the development of VTrans and the gubernatorial administration. The General Assembly changed the VTrans timeline to every four years and required the submission of a statewide plan by January 1, 2013 and another, updated statewide plan by December 1, In this way, each administration will have time not only to develop a VTrans update, but also to implement the recommendations therein, during their term in office.
4 Office of Intermodal Planning & Investment Why a VTrans2035 Update? Due to this legislative change, the current VTrans effort, known as VTrans2035 Update, is considered an interim update, which keeps the same horizon year as the previous VTrans2035. This update will serve as a bridge between VTrans2035, completed in 2009, and VTrans2040, due in 2015, as the Commonwealths shifts to a performance based planning standard.
