TransAction Plan

The Northern Virginia Transportation Authority’s TransAction Plan is updated every five years. The current version was adopted in October 2017 and includes more than 350 multimodal projects aimed at improving mobility and reducing congestion in the region. Local jurisdictions and agencies can request NVTA regional revenues to fund eligible TransAction projects, typically every two years. Projects approved for funding are subsequently incorporated into the Authority’s Six Year Program. After a series of one and two-year funding programs, the Authority’s inaugural FY 2018-2023 Six Year Program was adopted in June 2018. The current update to the Six Year Program for FY2020-2025 commenced in July 2019, and will be adopted in June 2020.

The next update to TransAction commenced with a Listening Session on January 9, 2020 at 7:00 p.m., and the TransAction Plan is expected to be adopted by December 2022.

TransAction is the multimodal transportation master plan for Northern Virginia. It is a long range plan addressing regional transportation needs through 2040. The Plan focuses on eleven major travel corridors in Northern Virginia, and identifies over 350 candidate regional projects for future transportation investments to improve travel throughout the region.TransAction is not bound to any budget, and proposes more projects than can realistically be funded. The results of TransAction are used to inform the NVTA’s Six Year Program for capital funding, guiding decisions about which transportation improvements the NVTA should prioritize for investment.
