Pavement Treatment

The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) is responsible for maintaining more than 125,000 lane miles of roadway.

  • 1,118 lane miles* of interstate
  • 8,111 lane miles of primary roads, which are numbered 599 and below.
  • 48,305 lane miles of secondary roads. Secondary routes are numbered 600 and above, which includes subdivision streets.

*One mile of every travel lane on a roadway equals one lane mile.

Virginia’s current highway network is the result of more than 100 years of investment in infrastructure that provides for the economic activities and the mobility of people and goods throughout the commonwealth.

Preserving this investment by maintaining the pavement is a core function of VDOT.
