This action repeals the Guide for Additions, Abandonments and Discontinuances, which was prepared as a reference primarily for Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) personnel throughout the Commonwealth. In 2009, the Attorney General's Government and Regulatory Reform Task Force recommended that the regulation be repealed because the regulation appeared to be a guidance document for VDOT personnel and therefore did not need to be retained as a regulation. In addition, the Code of Virginia has been amended in recent years to provide more detailed information on making changes to the secondary system of state highways, making much of the current guide obsolete or unnecessary. Upon repeal of this regulation, VDOT will include a revised guide as part of its list of guidance documents.
