Larger building provides space for public meetings and expanded facilities to serve residents of Essex, Gloucester, King and Queen, King William, Mathews and Middlesex counties

FREDERICKSBURG – The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) Saluda Residency Office has opened for business in its new building at 1027 General Puller Highway in Middlesex County.

The new building is located at the same address as the previous Residency Office. The former building was demolished to allow VDOT to rebuild a new facility on land it already owned.

Saluda Residency staff can serve the public more efficiently in the new building, which is 8,500 square feet. All departments are now located in a single building.

Additionally, the building includes a large conference room to hold public hearings and information meetings on local transportation projects.

The previous Saluda Residency Office was built in 1954 and was 3,500 square feet.

Construction began in March 2017. The Residency Office was temporarily located in the Town of Urbanna while construction was underway.

The Saluda Residency Office phone number will remain (804) 758-2321.

An open house for the public to tour the Residency Office building will be held in fall 2018. A date and time will be announced.


VDOT’s 14-county Fredericksburg District includes the counties of Caroline, King George, Spotsylvania and Stafford in the Fredericksburg area; Northumberland, Richmond, Lancaster and Westmoreland counties in the Northern Neck; Essex, Gloucester, King & Queen, King William, Mathews and Middlesex counties in the Middle Peninsula.
