Local roads; notice.  Provides that those cities and towns that decide to take over responsibility for their construction programs must notify the Commonwealth Transportation Board by December 31 (currently July 1) for implementation the following fiscal year. The bill exempts Rural Rustic Roads from regulations requiring additional engineering or improvements beyond those required to provide an adequate hard surface. Eliminates the requirement that a local governing body hold a public hearing when provided notice that VDOT plans to pave a secondary road within the locality and requires that the local governing body provide concurrence or other recommendation to the Commissioner within 72 hours of VDOT providing such notice.
