The Virginia Department of Transportation is, "responsible for building, maintaining and operating the state's roads, bridges and tunnels." However, VDOT does more than build and maintain roadways. In addition, they offer drivers and bikers information on travel safety, road conditions and travel advisories. We believe that using the information provided by VDOT will help you arrive at your destination on time and accident free. Please click on any of the phrases underlined below to visit the VDOT website directly.
- Current Road Conditions- Though winter provides drivers with more challenges than any other season, road conditions are affected by more than snow and ice. Construction work zones and accidents account for traffic delays and dangerous driving hazards each day. Current road conditions, along with traffic cameras, can help you make an informed decision about your driving route. Checking road conditions before you leave the house can save you time and might even help you avoid an accident. Traffic information is available here for the entire state to include Alexandria, Virginia Beach and Norfolk.
- Safety Programs- VDOT maintains various traffic safety programs. Their aim is to alert the public to various traffic safety issues and give drivers the resources they need to prevent accidents in Virginia. Current safety initiatives include: highway safety corridors, work zone safety and awareness, safety information center, motorcycle safety and safe routes to school.
- Projects and Studies- In order to determine the need for, cost of and possible impacts of proposed highway construction, VDOT conducts various projects and studies. You can search for projects in your town or view by region. Regions listed include Hampton Roads, Lynchburg, Northern Virginia and Richmond.
