VDOT has developed The CTB approved a new program to address this Code change at their June Board meeting and an application process has been be initiated to allow municipalities to apply for this funding for qualifying projects. If you are interested in applying for these funds, key information about what qualifies and how to apply is below:

High Volume Unpaved Road Funds

Effective July 1st, Section 33.1-23.1 will decrease the threshold for eligibility to use the unpaved road set aside funds from the prior minimum threshold of 200 vpd to 50 vpd.  To provide some additional funding for the higher volume roads, a small portion of the unpaved road funding available under this Code Section will be available for high volume unpaved roads (over 500 vpd). The CTB approved a new program to address this Code change at their June Board meeting and an application process has been be initiated to allow to allow Counties to apply for this supplemental funding for qualifying unpaved road projects.

Applications for both of these programs are due to the Local Assistance Division by August 15th.
