VDOT logo Virginia Department of Transportation: Primary and Secondary Roads

Generally, if a road has a route number associated with it (ex: Fairfax County Parkway - Route 286), it is maintained by the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT). This includes most primary and secondary roads in the county. Maintenance includes potholes; traffic signals and signs (except street name signs); trees/branches; roadside ditches, curbs and gutters; and snow removal.

Other Major Roads

VDOT does not maintain all major roads in the area, however. If you see maintenance issues on the following major roads:

Fairfax County Maintained Roads

Many private roads are maintained by businesses, apartment/condo complexes, homeowner/civic associations or residents.

  • If you know there's a maintenance issue on a road that's privately maintained, contact your HOA or the business that's responsible.
