General Information
Action Summary The Regulation for Transportation Conformity (9VAC5-150) requires that transportation plans, programs, and projects conform to state air quality requirements and federal requirements established under ยง 176(c) of the federal Clean Air Act. The regulation establishes the criteria and procedures for ensuring that transportation activities will not produce new air quality violations, worsen existing violations, or delay timely attainment of the national ambient air quality standards.
