The Coalition’s Rural Roads subcommittee reports that the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) has confirmed the 2017 list of unpaved roads set for restoration this spring and summer in this year’s enhanced care program. VDOT will trim brush and intrusive tree branches, clean up banks, restore and clean culverts and ditches, regrade the roads, apply new gravel, roll the gravel, and apply dust suppressant as needed. Routine maintenance will continue to be applied to the balance of the roads. In addition, VDOT will be experimenting with a new approach to stabilizing problem areas of gravel road on a short section of Hogback Mountain Road.
If you have any questions, please contact VDOT at 1-880-FOR-ROAD (1-800-367-7623) or go to www.virginiadot.org.
