Following the public comment period, the final revised program will be presented to the CTB for its adoption in November.

Comments are also encouraged on projects and programs to be considered for the next fiscal year’s version (FY 2016-2021) of SYIP, which will be updated for the CTB’s approval next June. Meeting materials will be available at http://www.virginiadot.org/2014fallmeetings beginning Sept. 23.
