General Information
Action Summary In 2008, the Office of the Attorney General (OAG) established a Government and Regulatory Reform Task Force. As part of this effort, the Infrastructure in Virginia Working Group was established to review governmental rules and regulations regarding education and transportation construction infrastructure to increase efficiencies, reduce bureaucracy and mitigate adverse impacts on Virginia businesses and individuals. The Task Force recommended to combine 24 VAC 30-310 (Virginia Supplement to the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices), 24 VAC 30-520 (Classifying and Marking State Highways), and 24 VAC 30-561 (Adoption of the Federal Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices) into a single regulation, since all three of these regulations relate to marking highways with respect to the Federal Highway Administration's (FHWA's) Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD). Subsequently, the FHWA published a revised edition of the MUTCD in the Federal Register on December 16, 2009, as a Final Rule, under which states had up to two years to adopt the new edition of the MUTCD and to revise any state Supplements created as companion documents to the MUTCD. VDOT determined to revise its state supplement in conjunction with adoption of the new MUTCD.
