Hello, VDOT?

Rappahannock News - - EDITORIAL & OPINION -

I’ve been try­ing to con­tact this agency or depart­ment, for the last four to six weeks, or since the flood of May. I read in the pa­per that they re­ceived a lim­ited amount of funds from the state, so I kind of un­der­stand why they haven’t fixed the road in front of my ceme­tery five to six weeks ago, on Route 614. So I tried to con­tact them to ask if they would ap­prove and let me fill the washout my­self.

When I called the num­ber listed for Rap­pa­han­nock VDOT fa­cil­ity in the “Green Pages,” I got Harrisonbu­rg, and they said they would pass my mes­sage on. Af­ter call­ing them four weeks in a row, I won­der if call­ing an 800 num­ber in In­dia might have worked bet­ter. I live a mile and a half from the VDOT com­pound across from the dump, but they have a sign say­ing “Au­tho­rized Ve­hi­cles Only,” and “Do Not En­ter,” so is this VDOT of­fice an ex­ten­sion of the Pen­tagon?
