CHAPTER 530

ROADWAY AND STRUCTURE LIGHTING (REPEALED)

24VAC30-530-10

24VAC30-530-10. Roadway and structure lighting (filed by description with the Registrar of Regulations). (Repealed.)

Description: The Department Policy Memorandum (DPM) 9-4, "Roadway & Structure Lighting," discusses the policy and procedures concerning the responsibility of the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) and localities in paying for roadway lighting.

VDOT may construct, maintain, and operate roadway lighting on highway systems which are maintained by it, where such lighting is deemed necessary for traffic safety by the engineers of the department. The cost of maintenance and operation of lighting will be borne by the appropriate system maintenance funds.

VDOT may construct roadway lighting on urban system highways where such lighting is deemed necessary for traffic safety by the engineers of the department, or for replacement of existing roadway lighting. The cost of the installation of the lighting shall be funded from the annual urban system construction allocations to the requesting locality. The cost of maintenance and operation of the lighting shall be borne by the locality.

Where roadway lighting on highway systems is requested by others for their benefit and convenience, and is not deemed necessary for traffic safety by the engineers of VDOT, the installation, maintenance, and operation of the lighting shall be provided by and at the sole expense of others, provided all necessary permits and agreements have been secured. Where approved lighting plans exist, the department may provide conduit and other roadway lighting amenities, at project cost, to avoid future disruptions to traffic.

This policy will apply to all construction projects advertised in July, 1996, and thereafter.
