In the effort to reduce the impact on the area surrounding Rolling Road, VDOT has begun to implement entirely new design standards. Since we are not using federal money a design with less impact on surrounding homes is possible, but as this is a new design VDOT has to start over. This new review and redesign process has created a delay, and the Public Hearing will now be occurring in the second half of 2017. During this time VDOT will be conducting public information meetings and meeting with HOAs to hear your questions and comments. I am always a fan of “measuring twice and cutting once” and I am happy that VDOT is paying such close attention to the impact aspects of the project.
