Item 445 #3h

Transportation, Department of

Page 381, after line 25, insert:
"E.  Out of the funds provided in this program for the maintenance of rural roads, the Department shall allocate $3,200,000 in the first year and $3,200,000 in the second year for improvements to rural roads in Loudoun County."

(This amendment directs the use of $3.2 million of VDOT maintenance funding each year for improvements to rural routes in Loudoun County. This would be an increased reallocation of $900,000 each year that is currently programmed for this purpose. At 557 lane miles, Loudoun County has the highest mileage of unpaved roads in the Commonwealth. This amendment would allow these roads to be adequately and safely maintained through grading, drainage and ditch improvements, dust and vegetation control and clearing while maintaining the rural character of the roadways and avoiding the costs of paving these roads.)
