Attractions Signs for Drive In Theaters (language only)

Item 451 #1h

Item 451 #1h

Department of Transportation


Page 395, after line 9, insert:

"E.  Out of the amounts appropriated in this item, the department is hereby directed to work with the Commonwealth's six drive-in theaters to either add them to existing highway attractions signs, or where no such signs exist for other attractions, to install new signs."


(This amendment directs VDOT to install highway attraction signs for the six drive-in theaters in Virginia. If such attractions are being added to an existing sign, the cost is covered by the business at not cost to the state. The only potential costs associated with this proposal would be for the cost of adding a new attraction sign where one does not exist. Given the small number of drive-in theaters in Virginia, that cost would be minimal and could be subsumed within VDOT's $1.7 billion annual maintenance budget.)
