More Than a Job

The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) focuses on building and maintaining roads, but our efforts touch so much more.

When you consider that transportation is woven into the social, economic and environmental fabric of Virginia, you get a sense of the variety of jobs needed to keep Virginia moving.
