24VAC30-151-20. Authority.

The General Rules and Regulations of the Commonwealth Transportation Board (see 24VAC30-151-760) are adopted pursuant to the authority of § 33.2-210 of the Code of Virginia, and in accordance with the Virginia Administrative Process Act (Chapter 40 (§ 2.2-4000 et seq.) of Title 2.2 of the Code of Virginia). These rules and regulations provide that no work of any nature shall be performed on any real property under the ownership, control, or jurisdiction of VDOT until written permission has been obtained from VDOT. Real property includes, but is not limited to, the right-of-way of any highway in the state highways system. Written permission is granted either by permit or a state-authorized contract let by VDOT. By issuing a permit, VDOT is giving permission only for whatever rights it has in the right-of-way; the permittee is responsible for obtaining permission from others who may also have an interest in the property. Employees of VDOT are authorized to issue permits as described in this chapter. This chapter prescribes the specific requirements of such permits.
