VDOT and Emergency Response

The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) is a public safety agency. We respond to various emergencies on the roads to keep the public safe and to keep Virginia moving.

It is critically important to be ready in case of bad weather, natural disaster or other emergency situation. For more on what you and your family or business can do to prepare, visit the Virginia Department of Emergency Management.

Here's how VDOT keeps the commonwealth's transportation system operating, and how you can stay safe and be prepared:
