[S 956]

Approved March 28, 1999

Be it enacted by the General Assembly of Virginia:

1. § 1. The Department of Transportation, in consultation with the Department of State Police, the County of Henrico, and other affected jurisdictions, shall relocate the vehicle weighing station located on Interstate Route 64 in Henrico County east of the City of Richmond to another location on Interstate Route 64. In selecting a site for the relocation of such weighing station, the Department shall, among other factors, consider the desirability of (i) minimizing the bypassing of the facility through the use of alternative routes over local streets, (ii) providing sufficient space off the traveled lanes of Interstate Route 64 for the queuing of vehicles waiting to be weighed, and (iii) providing space for installation of an inspection pit for use in conjunction with motor carrier inspections of vehicles waiting to be weighed. The Department of Transportation shall forthwith initiate planning for the relocation of the aforementioned facility and shall commence and complete construction of the relocated facility as soon as practicable, consistent with the aforementioned consultations with the Department of State Police and affected jurisdictions, availability of funds for such project, providing an opportunity for receiving and considering public comment on the project, and the requirements of state and federal law applicable to such construction projects.
