VTrans 2025: Virginia's Statewide Multimodal Long-Range Transportation Plan

Commonwealth of Virginia Secretary of Transportation

This plan is a tool for establishing a consistent approach to integrate a consideration for walking into transportation planning in Virginia. It discusses several influences on the need to offer and operate pedestrian facilities, including Federal legislation such as the Intermodal Surface Transportation Efficiency Act (ISTEA), ADA accessibility requirements, and Virginia Department of Transportation policies. The plan reveals a regional program for obtaining public input, holding twelve public stakeholder meetings across the state. It acknowledges that disagreements exist on how to accommodate pedestrians and that there is a need to arrive at a cooperative solution.
