The Virginia Department of Transportation continues to be concerned with the high rate of distracted driving crashes in work zones. Therefore, the department is expanding the use of portable temporary rumble strips to include all permits issued on and after July 1, 2022, and operations on two-lane roadways by utility companies. Beginning July 1, 2022, permit and utility projects will be required to use PTRS when the work meets the PTRS criteria found in the Virginia Work Area Protection Manual. A copy of the new IIM-386.2, Portable Temporary Rumble Strips (PTRS), can be found by clicking HERE.
