Warren County Accepting Application for Rural Addition Program
28 July 2017 News
Warren County is seeking applications for the County’s Rural Addition Program to upgrade and take roads into the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) system. The program allows private subdivisions streets to be upgraded to minimum standards permitting their addition to the secondary system of highways through a combination of property owner, county and state funding. The county will accept applications postmarked by September 1, 2017.
In October 2005, the Warren County Board of Supervisors adopted a policy that will allow the County to cost-share with VDOT and the various property owners’ associations/property owners to bring roads into the state system subject to available funding.
Eligible roads are defined as those meeting the criteria for Rural Additions under Code Section 33.2-335. Because of the state’s minimum grade requirements (no more than a 10% slope); many of the private subdivision roads in Warren County cannot be brought up to state standards and taken into the system. An eligible road must have been shown on a plat which was recorded or otherwise opened to public use and used by motor vehicles for at least 20 years and that, for any reason, has not been taken into the secondary state highway system and serves at least three families per mile.
