I find it interesting that a lot of the roads appear to be in HOA neighborhoods. Why would VDOT be responsible for that?

Because the majority of roads are state owned and state maintained. In Sterling, both in Countryside and Cascades, each has a mixture of state and private roads but mostly state. We get state plowed as well. Looks like we are on that list to be paved. Amen.

Not sure how it was decided, though, what would be state and what is private/HOA.

Yeah, but Cascades and Countryside homes are 20+ years old, right? I would think that the more recent developments (0-10 years old) would have placed the maintenance burden on the developer/ HOA and not the state.


I guess not....

VDOT has a page where you can submit road problems, including those that need repaving. It's called Report A Road Problem: https://my.vdot.virginia.gov/

They are normally pretty good with responses to submissions from there.

yes. I have used that several times in addition to writing to our district rep. VERY quick responses in all cases.

lol do you have any idea how much it costs to pave a road? At least $100K per mile.

I absolutely know how much it costs to pave a road; as I had to repair my sewer, which happened to be under a VA state highway. The cost to re-pave (as per VDOT requirements) almost doubled an already extremely expensive repair.

I get that it isn't cheap. And I'm not entirely saying the actual HOA/ homeowners should pay for constant repaving......but I don't see why the developers shouldn't have been made to pre-fund road maintenance for a certain number of years.

I was told that if your home faces a street, then VDOT takes care of it. A better way of explaining it --- We have some townhouses in our community. We have one road in the development that connects to the main road. None of the townhouses face that main road so the townhouse streets are the responsibility of the HOA when it comes to maintenance and plowing. The single family houses face the main road and VDOT is responsible for maintenance and plowing.

Lot of them State owned, so VADOT is also responsible for snow removal...
