The Commonwealth Transportation Board will take your comments into consideration as it develops the Six-Year Improvement Program (FY 2019-2024 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 projects and funding allocations in the proposed Six-Year Improvement Program (SYIP) via a map or project list.  The SYIP Database is accessible at http://syip.virginiadot.org/Pages/allProjects.aspx and for project status see the SMART SCALE Dashboard or the VDOT Dashboard


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)
