Subscribe to VDOT's RSS Feeds
RSS is an acronym for Real Simple Syndication. It is a syndication format used to distribute information and real-time updates of Web content.
RSS feeds are a quick way to allow website users to know when a page has been updated.
The Virginia Department of Transportation has deployed RSS feeds on many pages of VirginiaDOT.org and other platforms (Twitter, YouTube, etc.) where VDOT maintains a Web presence.
The feeds can be read by many browsers, including the latest versions of Internet Explorer and Firefox.
Pages with feeds are denoted by the RSS symbol, shown at right. This symbol usually appears in the command bar of the browser. If the symbol is grayed out, the page does not have a feed.
Those using Google Chrome as their browser may need an add on, which are available at https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/rss-subscription-extensio/nlbjncdgjeocebhnmkbbbdekmmmcbfjd
