Virginia Administrative Code
Title 24. Transportation And Motor Vehicles
Agency 30. Department of Transportation
Chapter 580. Guidelines for Considering Requests for Restricting Through Trucks on Primary and Secondary Highways

24VAC30-580-20. Authority to restrict truck traffic on primary and secondary highways.

The Commonwealth Transportation Board delegates the authority to restrict through truck traffic on secondary highways to the Commissioner of the Virginia Department of Transportation. Such restrictions can apply to any truck, truck and trailer or semitrailer combination, or any combination of those classifications. Consideration of all such restrictions by the commissioner is subject to this chapter as adopted by the board. Any request for such restrictions that fails to objectively satisfy the required criteria found in 24VAC30-580-40 may be rejected by the Virginia Department of Transportation District Administrator or District Engineer for the Construction District in which the restriction is requested prior to presentation to the commissioner. The board shall retain authority to restrict through truck traffic on primary highways.
