The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) has developed the Integrated Directional Sign Program (IDSP) to serve as an umbrella for four specific programs that include those signs.

Specific Travel Services (Logo) Signs

Specific Service Logo Signs Program

Logo signs guide motorists to specific gas, food, lodging, camping and attraction locations along Virginia’s interstates and controlled-access highways.

As directed by Chapter 491 of the Virginia Acts of Assembly – 2005 Session (Senate Bill 813) – VDOT reviewed its Logo Sign Program’s fee structure to ensure the program is not used to generate excess revenue beyond a 10 percent margin to operate the IDSP. VDOT proposed reduced fees. It also considered options for the gas facilities categories to give priority to those facilities providing gas 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

The Commonwealth Transportation Board (CTB) approved VDOT's recommendations on June 16, 2005.Tourist-oriented directional signs
