Transportation PlanningRRRC Seeking Comment on Draft Regional Long Range Transportation Plan (January 10, 2022)

The Rappahannock-Rapidan Regional Commission (RRRC) is accepting comments on the draft Regional Long Range Transportation Plan (RLRP). The RLRP identifies key transportation needs through analysis of regional demographic and baseline data trends within the context of statewide planning strategies, goals and funding mechanisms.

The primary purposes of the RLRP revision are to ensure that the region’s transportation network allows for, and encourages, the safe and efficient movement of people and goods, and to ensure that new and/or revised projects are included in the RLRP in order to maximize the plan's value for transportation funding through the Smart Scale, Revenue Sharing, Transportation Alternatives and other funding sources available through the Commonwealth Transportation Board, Virginia Department of Transportation and Department of Rail and Public Transportation.

The draft plan may be accessed at Comments are requested via email to by February 9, 2022.

The Rappahannock-Rapidan Regional Commission has produced many regional transportation studies that focus on priority issues for its member jurisdictions, including Highway and Railway corridor studies, Grant Writing assistance, Bicycle and Pedestrian reports, Human Services Transportation, and Commuter Lot Surveys and Reports.

Through a partnership with the Virginia Department of Transportation, RRRC manages an annual Rural Transportation Work Program guided by members of the Regional Commission as well as the RRRC Rural Transportation Committee. Through the Rural Work Program, RRRC is able to offer a variety of transportation planning and technical assistance services to the five counties and eight towns in the region.

The RRRC Rural Transportation Technical Committee provides an opportunity for area planners, transportation providers and stakeholders to share information and discuss transportation issues and projects in the region. Click here for more information on the Rural Transportation Committee.

The Regional Commission also provides staff and support for the RRRC Commuter Services program and the Foothills Area Mobility System.

The Regional Commission works closely with staff from the Virginia Department of Transportation's Culpeper District and Charlottesville, Louisa and Warrenton residencies.
