VDOT is accepting public comments through May 16th on transportation projects that have been scored and recommended for funding through the SMART SCALE prioritization process based on an objective and data-driven analysis.


The Commonwealth Transportation Board will take your comments into consideration as it develops the Six-Year Improvement Program (FY 2018-2023 SYIP). The program allocates public funds to highway, road, bridge, rail, bicycle, pedestrian and public transportation projects. All federally eligible projects in the SYIP will be included in the Statewide Transportation Improvement Program to document how Virginia will obligate its federal funds.


You can review the list of scored projects for public comment at the SMARTSCALE website accessible via the link below.  

Critically important projects in Goochland include: 

  • Improve interchange at Rt. 288 and Broad Street Road (Rt. 250)
  • Install a traffic signal at the intersection of Patterson Avenue (Rt. 6) and West Creek Parkway
  • Install a traffic signal at the interchange of I-64 and Ashland Road (Rt. 623)


While VDOT has wrapped up their scheduled public meetings, which included a formal comment period.  Those unable to attend one of the meetings may view the displays at the link below and provide your comments by email or US mail.  Comments are being accepted by May 16th.
