Roads and Transportation

Louisa County works closely with our local Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) representatives and regional transportation planning groups, including the Thomas Jefferson Planning District Commission (TJPDC). VDOT is responsible for maintenance and improvements to the County's state road system. 

How Roadway Solutions are Developed

The County works with VDOT and the community to aid in designing and planning larger-scale improvements and other projects. 

VDOT briefs the Board of Supervisors quarterly, and needs for improvements are openly discussed. As they are the experts in Virginia roadways, VDOT leads research and design work on projects with the most pressing needs, and then proposes their solutions to the Board of Supervisors.

Six-Year Improvement Program Funding & the CTB 

Public meetings are held across Virginia each fall regarding improvements to the interstate, primary and secondary roads, public transit, and more. A draft of the Six-Year Improvement Program is then presented to the Commonwealth Transportation Board (CTB) in the spring, and the CTB allocates public funds to transportation projects over six-fiscal years. Louisa coordinates with our local VDOT administrator to determine recommended updates to the Six Year Improvement Program. As tax dollars are limited, the CTB evaluates projects across the state by anticipated benefits like how they will improve safety or reduce congestion. Public meetings are held before a final program is adopted in June.

 VDOT's draft plan for secondary road projects in Louisa County is available here.
