This action is exempt from the executive branch review process.
Repeal Roadway and Structure Lighting
General Information
Action Summary The Commissioner of Highways issued a Departmental Memorandum (DM 9-4) in 1995 that specifies the conditions for when VDOT will pay for the construction and maintenance of roadway lighting, and when those costs should be borne by others, including localities. The CTB adopted DM 9-4 as an official CTB Policy, which is available to the public in the CTB Policy Index on the CTB website. The current regulation merely references, by description, the underlying CTB Policy in DM 9-4, and has no additional substantive obligations. In 2009, the Attorney General’s Regulatory Reduction Task Force identified this regulation as unnecessary and recommended its repeal for those reasons.
