Road, Transit, Bike and Pedestrian Recommendations
The Transportation Department is responsible for providing information and recommendations on technical and policy issues regarding road, transit, and bike and pedestrian facilities and acts as the liaison between residents and the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT), which maintains the majority of roads in the county.
Transportation advises on land use and development projects to the Board of Supervisors, County Administration, Planning Commission, Board of Zoning Appeals, residents and businesses. The department conducts studies, seeks funding for and manages transportation improvement projects. For information concerning the county right-of-way, contact the Real Property Office.
