Chapter 420

REGISTRAR'S NOTICE: The Commonwealth Transportation Board is claiming an exemption from the Administrative Process Act in accordance with § 2.2-4002 B 3 of the Code of Virginia, which exempts regulations relating to the location, design, specifications or construction of public buildings or other facilities.

Title of Regulation: 24VAC30-420. Operation and Maintenance of Roads in Incorporated Towns Less Than 3,500 (repealing 24VAC30-420-10).

Statutory Authority: § 33.2-210 of the Code of Virginia.

Effective Date: October 14, 2021.

Background: Sections 33.2-339 and 33.2-340 of the Code of Virginia authorize the Commissioner of Highways, subject to the approval of the Commonwealth Transportation Board (CTB), to may maintain, improve, construct, and reconstruct streets in any town with a population of less than 3,500 from allocations available from secondary highway funds not to exceed two miles of streets or highways in such towns included in the secondary state highway system. The regulation specifies the CTB's policy on approving requests for maintenance of roads under §§ 33.2-339 and 33.2-340 and guides the CTB in its decisions on funding of maintenance of highways in towns, which may be accomplished through a similar guidance document or a CTB policy, making the regulation unnecessary.


The amendments repeal Operation and Maintenance of Roads in Incorporated Towns Less Than 3,500 (24VAC30-420).
