The Fredericksburg Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (FAMPO) has several transportation-related documents out for public review and comment. All comments will be considered before the documents are formally approved. The documents are listed below. Visit https://www.fampo.gwregion.org/public-involvement/  to learn how to review and comment. The comment period ends on June 19, 2020.

Four documents for public review and comment: 

1. An amendment to the 2045 Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP), a 20-year transportation plan for the Fredericksburg region. It is necessary to amend the financially constrained list of transportation projects and studies. 

2. An air quality analysis report related to the LRTP amendment above. An air quality analysis is required when transportaion projects will add to vehicle capaicty. 

3. An amendment to the FY20 Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP), a document that details the work FAMPO staff will complete in fiscal year 2020 and funding sources for that year. The amendment will “deprogram” funds from our FY20 UPWP and have them carry over directly to the next fiscal year. 

4. The FY21 Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP), a document that details the work FAMPO staff will complete in fiscal year 2021 and funding sources for that year.

Over 1,700 people have signed a petition in support of a Proposal for Parallel Road with Trail on the West side of I-95. Please take a look at the proposal.

I was on a Transportation committee 25 years ago and have been studying the regional transportation grid ever since. I have been frustrated with the lack of progress, so I put together a modified version of Stafford's Comprehensive Transportation Plan to form a Parallel Road with a Trail on the West side of I-95. The proposal Maximizes the use of hundreds of Millions of Dollars in underused Transportation Infrastructure and uses 5 existing roads to keep costs down, impacts low and make it more environmentally friendly.

The local road will greatly improve our Regional Transportation Grid, Reduce Traffic Congestion on a 16 mile stretch of Route 1, Reduce Emissions, Reduce Traffic on the most congested sections of Route 630, Route 17, Route 3 West and many other Existing Roads. It will provide a high time saving factor that can reduce driving by thousands of miles each day. It provides many different driving alternatives to avoid the most congested areas with alternatives for locals to avoid road shut downs on I-95 or Route 1. The proposal will provide different alternatives for rescue vehicle transports to two different hospitals, while reducing rescue and transport times in some areas. It will also provide a shorter safer route for the school buses in Stafford getting the buses and teens off the back roads.
