Vision Plan
 

VTrans2040 is the long-range, statewide multimodal policy plan that provides the overarching vision and goals for transportation in the Commonwealth of Virginia. It identifies transportation conditions and trends anticipated over the coming years and their potential influence on transportation.

VTrans2040 provides a vision for Virginia’s future transportation system and defines goals, objectives, and guiding principles to achieve the vision. It provides direction to state and regional transportation agencies on strategies and policies to be incorporated into their plans and programs.

“We should be focused on improving the ability of Virginia businesses to move goods, attract more jobs to the Commonwealth, and improve the quality of life for all Virginians.”
