“The three projects that VDOT awarded funding to are all important elements of the Town’s efforts to improve safety and reduce congestion in Leesburg,” said Capital Projects Manager Tom Brandon. “The receipt of Revenue Sharing funds for the projects will ensure that these projects are fully funded and will remain on schedule.”
The CTB awards funding through the Revenue Sharing program on a bi-annual basis. The awarded projects are for fiscal years 2019 and 2020. A total of $8.59 million was awarded to the Leesburg projects. To be awarded revenue sharing funds, localities must provide a one hundred percent match from local funding sources
VDOT’s Local Assistance Program provides guidance and assistance to localities in administering roadway improvement projects with VDOT and/or Federal Highway Administration funding.
