Description
This action is exempt from the executive branch review process.
The Integrated Directional Signing Program (IDSP) contributes to the public health, safety, and welfare by facilitating motorist awareness and accessibility to historical, cultural, or commercial attractions. It consolidates four specific highway signing programs: • Specific Travel Services (Logo) Signs: a program for signs to guide motorists to specific gas, food, lodging, camping and attraction locations along Virginia’s interstates and controlled-access highways. • Tourist-Oriented Directional Signs (TODS): a newly-created program for signs used along roads that do not have limited access, such as most primary and secondary highways, to guide motorists to businesses, services, recreation and other facilities nearby. • Supplemental Guide Signs: a program for signs to guide motorists traveling from outside the immediate area to specific cultural, recreational, historical, governmental, educational, military and other sites of interest. • General Motorist Services Logo Signs: a program for signs that use symbols or general terms to let motorists know that services such as hospitals, public phones, gas, food, lodging, or camping are nearby. In addition, the IDSP incorporates special programs signing criteria for the following programs: • Civil War Trails; • Birding and Wildlife Trails; • Wayfinding Signs; • Virginia Waterways Signage; and • State Scenic River Signs. Furthermore, additional criteria and considerations for the integration of the Winery Signage Program are addressed in the IDSP. The IDSP criteria address issues such as: requirements businesses and other program participants must meet for eligibility, new categories for specific programs, and fee structures that were not previously regulatory actions.
