Land Development

Welcome to VDOT's Northern Virginia Land Development Section Home Page.

Our Mission is to facilitate the provision of a well-planned, safe, and high-quality transportation infrastructure through cooperation with the development industry and Northern Virginia Governments.

Throughout the rezoning, site plan and permitting process we:

  • review land development applications
  • evaluate and negotiate transportation improvements
  • review proposed entrance, utility and construction permits
  • resolve design issues in new streets and intersections
  • educate the development community
  • protect existing VDOT roadways
