[H 1543]

Approved April 4, 2006

 

Be it enacted by the General Assembly of Virginia:

1. § 1. Notwithstanding any other provision of law, the Commonwealth Transportation Board and the Commonwealth Transportation Commissioner shall not diminish funds allocated or allocable to any county for use under the Rural Addition Program by reason of any county ordinance authorizing the use of private roads not built to standards set by the Department of Transportation or construction of subdivisions streets built to standards other than those established by the Department.

§ 2. In those counties where this Act is applicable, the ordinance shall also state that any and all streets that are not constructed to meet the standards necessary for inclusion in the system of state highways will be privately maintained and will not be eligible for acceptance into the system of state highways unless improved to current Department of Transportation standards with funds other than those appropriated by the General Assembly and allocated by the Commonwealth Transportation Board. For any street that is not constructed to Department of Transportation standards, the subdivision plat and all approved deeds of subdivision, or similar instruments, shall contain a statement advertising that the streets in the subdivision do not meet the standards necessary for inclusion in the system of state highways and will not be maintained by the Department of Transportation or the county approving the subdivision and are not eligible for rural addition funds or any other funds appropriated by the General Assembly and allocated by the Commonwealth Transportation Board.
