State and local transportation planning. Provides that prior to the adoption of or amendment to any comprehensive plan in Planning District 8 (Northern Virginia) or review of a proposed rezoning in Planning District 8, the Department of Transportation shall consider the transportation impact of the proposed plan or rezoning and name any transportation facility for which a reduction in the level of service is anticipated as a result of the proposed plan or rezoning. Current law provides for such review for any transportation facility having a functional classification of minor arterial or higher for which an increase in traffic volume is expected to exceed the capacity of the facility as a result of the change. The bill requires that if the proposed comprehensive plan or rezoning is within Planning District 8, the locality shall propose one or more transportation projects in its local transportation plan, or within the regional transportation plan, to ensure no reduction of service to any transportation facility affected by the plan or rezoning.
