35 MPH SPEED LIMIT ENACTED FOR ALL UNPAVED ROADWAYS IN VIRGINIA Effective July 1, a maximum speed limit of 35 mph will apply to all unpaved roads statewide, as a result of legislation passed by the General Assembly this year. The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) proposed the revised speed limit for unpaved roads to keep the speed limit consistent. Prior to the revision, the maximum speed limit on these roads was 55 mph, though this varied by counties. “The revision to speed limits on all unpaved roads will cause less confusion for motorists,” said VDOT Chief Engineer Garrett Moore. “A lower speed limit of 35 mph is a reasonable and safer speed limit for unpaved roads across the state.” The law does not require VDOT to post speed limit signs on unpaved roadways. VDOT is working with the Department of Motor Vehicles to help educate drivers on the new statewide speed limit. “Virginia State Police will continue to enforce speed limit laws, just as we always have for the safety of all motorists,” said Col. W. Steven Flaherty, Virginia State Police Superintendent. “Troopers have the authority to warn, summons or arrest those who fail to comply with established speed limits.”
