The county's unpaved roads were the primary concern of citizens who spoke at a public hearing, Monday night, on the six year plan for secondary roads.
According to Bob Sutton, the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) residency administrator for Bedford County, there are 250 miles of unpaved roads in the county; 150 of these roads qualify for paving. More than 50 vehicles must go over a road each day in order for it to qualify.
David Powers, who lives off Va. 635, said that there are 26 houses on this one mile unpaved road. There is a new subdivision planned there.
