Implementation of VDOT's Bike/Ped Policy

In 2004 VDOT developed a new policy for integrating bicycle and pedestrian accommodations. It's a good policy but it wasn't being implemented. The Secretary of Transportation asked VDOT to figure out how to ensure that the policy would be implemented in the future. A task force was formed and the result was a new set of policies outlined in a January 23, 2007 letter sent by Richard L. Walton, Chief of Policy, Planning and the Environment, VDOT outlining the new policies.

The biggest win for cyclists is the “goal of spending 2 percent of the paving budget in each VDOT Construction District to provide paved shoulders.” To read the letter and the other documents associated with the new polices, visit the VDOT website.
