Transportation officials in Virginia are asking for comments on their plan to improve transportation in the state.

The Virginia Department of Transportation, and the state Department of Rail and Public Transportation have developed the 2035 Virginia Surface Transportation Plan. It provides information for potential long-term project development, and investment in transit, rail, freight, highway and intelligent transportation systems.

The plan will be used to determine highway projects for the six-year improvement plan. A summary map and report can be found on Virginia's transportation website (http://www.vtrans.org). The draft plan is available for public review and comment until July 30.
