A Resolution to Designate Route 790 (Boteler Road) a Rural Rustic Road


Topic Description:

During the annual review of the Six-Year Plan for improvements to its secondary system of State highways, it was determined that Route 790 (Boteler Road) would qualify for the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) Rural Rustic Road program.  This is an improvement program designed to have minimal impact on the rural character of existing roads.  The Board of Supervisors must designate a road as “Rural Rustic” to be eligible for this program.


Requested Action of the Board of Supervisors:

Consider adoption of the attached resolution.

Transportation Committee Recommendation:

On July 27, 2005, the County’s Transportation Committee recommended that Route 790 be designated as a Rural Rustic Road.


Financial Impact Analysis:

VDOT will fund the road improvements.


Identify any other Departments, Organizations or Individuals that would be affected by this request:
