All local transportation projects that receive federal funding have to be approved by the regional Transportation Planning Board.

This afternoon, the board updated its ongoing list of projects under consideration. Several projects that were on the list last year were taken off for lack of funding.

David Snyder, the Board's chairman, says this is an example of the region doing what it can with less.

"We are making the most of everything we have," he says. "The reality is there just isn't enough there. And the results of that is something that are pretty evident to everybody."

Some of the projects that didn't make the list this year -- new interchanges on I-95 in Fairfax County, Va. and Prince George's County, Md.
