WASHINGTON - Municipalities throughout Virginia will receive a share of nearly $155 million in state funds to help with infrastructure projects, Gov. Bob McDonnell announced Friday.
The Commonwealth Transportation Board approved the state matching funds through Virginia’s revenue sharing program, to which localities apply for infrastructure funding help each year. The Virginia Department of Transportation recommends projects to receive the state money, and the CTB approves them. Eligible spending includes construction, maintenance, and improvements. The state match of local spending will help advance $560 million of transportation projects, McDonnell said.
