Northern Virginia Paving Program

Algonkian District Road Repaving Announcement
From Suzanne Volpe’s newsletter

The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) has released its list of roads to be repaved this upcoming fiscal year (July1, 2017 – June 30, 2018). We are delighted that our efforts to advocate for the community have been yielding some fruit. This year, we have hit the bumper crop. Over 100 roads are scheduled to be repaved within the Algonkian District. The neighborhoods included are Cascades, Countryside, Great Falls Forest, Seneca Ridge and Sugarland Run. For clarity, VDOT is not repaving every road in each of these neighborhoods. Below is information on the specific areas to be repaved.

As you may remember, VDOT did not have a good repaving budget for more than a decade, so most of the roads in Northern Virginia needed to be repaved. In 2013, the General Assembly passed the “Transportation Package” (HB2313), which allocated additional funding for transportation, including maintenance. VDOT has been working diligently to repave as many roads as possible since they have received this additional funding. They have focused on roads that are in very bad shape and/or have not ever been repaved. (We have roads in our area, which are more than 40 years old, which have never been repaved.)

VDOT has the 2017 Pavement Project Status posted on their website at www.virginiadot.org under the Projects & Studies tab. Residents can visit their website and look at their specific neighborhood to review the roads scheduled to be repaved. This interactive map will be updated throughout the year, so residents can review the status of the repaving projects within their neighborhood. Please know that my office will work with local homeowner associations to provide any updates from VDOT, so residents will hopefully have advanced notice prior to work commencing in their specific neighborhood.

Who Maintains Your Road? New Loudoun County Online Map Provides the Answer

from the Loudoun County Website

Screen shot of road maintenance map

Loudoun County has launched a new online tool to help residents determine the entity that is responsible for maintaining roads within the county, including snow removal and surface repairs.

The interactive, searchable map provides users with a resource for navigating the complex maintenance responsibility system for the road network in the county. In addition, the map links to a webpage with contact information for the various entities to help residents report concerns about maintenance to the correct entity.

Users may search by a street address, view responsibility by color-coded system or click on a particular road and a pop-up box will appear indicating road maintenance responsibility. The responsibility for road maintenance in Loudoun County varies by road. Most roads are maintained by the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT), one of the county’s incorporated towns, and private entities, such as homeowners associations (HOA).

“This tool is particularly useful for identifying maintenance responsibility in residential neighborhoods, which sometimes have two different responsible entities for two adjacent roads,” said Department of Building and Development Director Mike Seigfried. “In advance of snow events, for example, residents can learn whether their HOAs will plow snow on their streets and then contact their HOAs to learn about their snow-removal plans.”

As newly-constructed roads are developed, maintenance responsibility may change from one entity to another, such as from a developer to a homeowners association. The Loudoun County map will be updated on a monthly basis.

A link to the map and contact information for the various entities involved in road maintenance in the county may be found on the Loudoun County website at www.loudoun.gov/roads.
