The Northern Virginia Transportation Authority (NVTA) is scheduled to host an open house and public hearing for Northern Virginians to learn about the Draft TransAction Plan and share comments in regards to it. The open house will commence at 5:30 p.m. and the public hearing at 7:00 p.m. tonight, July 13, at the NVTA offices, 3040 Williams Drive, Suite 200 in Fairfax.
The NVTA had urged the public to learn about and comment on the draft TransAction plan addressing the projected increase in traffic congestion and crowding on transit services. Specifically, the population in Northern Virginia is forecasted to increase by 24 percent, and employment by 37 percent by 2040. The draft TransAction plan identifies more than 350 candidate projects and $44 billion in unmet transportation needs.
