More Loudoun County Unpaved Roads Could See Preservation

From today's Loudoun Times-Mirror...

A bill that could add more of Loudoun County's unpaved roads to the state's Rural Rustic Road Program passed through the House of Delegates in Richmond this week.

Authored by Del. Joe May (R-western Loudoun), House Bill 1406 would increase the number of roads that qualify for this preservation program by upping the requirement for maximum number of car trips from 1,000 to 1,500 a day. Local routes 600, 626, 647, 650 and 709 could be added to the program if the bill is approved by the General Assembly, according to May.

The article added that at 337 miles, Loudoun County has the second-highest concentration of unpaved roads in the commonwealth, according to the Virginia Department of Transportation. Most of these roads are in western Loudoun.
