Summary as introduced:
Commonwealth Transportation Commissioner. Changes the title "Commonwealth Transportation Commissioner" to "Commissioner of Highways." The bill also eliminates the requirement that the Commissioner employ an assistant commissioner for the environment, transportation planning, and regulatory affairs; allows the Commissioner to transfer, abandon, and discontinue roads in the primary and secondary systems of state highways or move roads from one such system to another when such actions are recommended as appropriate by the Chief Engineer in connection with a construction or maintenance project; eliminates the requirement that the CTB must declare excess right-of-way surplus before VDOT may sell the land; and amends the Code to allow VDOT to submit one comprehensive report focusing on VDOT operations and services. This bill is the same as SB 1005.
