"E. Out of the funds provided in this program, VDOT shall dedicate such sums as shall be necessary to ensure that the pavement of all roadway shoulders along the Interstate System within one mile of an interchange which are wider than six fee are clearly marked for drivers in order to distinguish the shoulder from the conventional roadway lanes.  By October 15 of each year, the department shall submit to the Governor and the Chairmen of the House and Senate Transportation Committees a report on the progress that has been made in marking such shoulders."

(This amendment requires VDOT to add lane markings distinguishing Interstate shoulders from conventional lanes in all areas within one mile of an interchange and report their progress on such actions to the Governor and the General Assembly on an annual basis.)
