HIGHWAY ZONING IN VIRGINIA

A RECENT REVIEW OF 73 VIRGINIA HIGHWAY PROJECTS INCLUDING 178 MILES OF HIGHWAY RECONSTRUCTION IN FIFTY COUNTIES SHOWED THAT NEARLY $3,000 PER MILE WAS EXPENDED FOR MOVING STRUCTURES. IT IS HOPED TO REDUCE HIGHWAY IMPROVEMENT COSTS BY ESTABLISHING HIGHWAY ZONING FOR SET-BACK LINES ON ALL EXISTING PRIMARY HIGHWAYS SCHEDULED FOR RECONSTRUCTION. RIGHTS OF WAY FROM 110 TO 160 FT IN WIDTH ARE BEING PURCHASED IN THE VARIOUS COUNTIES, AND REGIONAL PUBLIC MEETINGS ARE BEING HELD TO ACQUAINT COUNTY OFFICIALS AND THE PUBLIC WITH THE MANY ADVANTAGES OF ZONING AS AN AID TOWARD REDUCING COSTS OF FUTURE HIGHWAY DEVELOPMENT. /AUTHOR/
