Transportation in Isle of Wight is managed collaboratively between the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) and the County’s Transportation Division. All roadways in the County are either “public” roadways owned and maintained by (VDOT) or “private” roadways owned and maintained by individual property owners. The Town of Smithfield does maintain some secondary roads within the Town boundary.
The County does not own or maintain any roadways in Isle of Wight.
Local construction projects for new improvements, including sidewalks, turn lanes, bridge replacements, and road widening can be managed either by VDOT or by the Transportation Division through the State’s Locally Administered Program (LAP). An overview of the County’s LAP program can be read HERE, or watched HERE through the Board of Supervisor’s meeting video archive.
For project updates or all other issues, including assistance with unresolved VDOT issues, please contact the County Transportation Division.
