Hazardous Materials

Who do I contact at the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) about the regulation of hazardous materials?

Contact the Virginia State Police, the enforcing agency, with questions about transporting hazardous materials. Any questions regarding hazardous materials transportation can be forwarded to Lt. Patrick Sedillo.

There are special considerations for hazardous materials that are being transported through one of the six state-owned tunnels.  Contact VDOT at 1-800-FOR-ROAD (1-800-367-7623) for more information.
