This survey provides data for the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT). That agency must provide highway finance data to the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) of the U.S. Department of Transportation. FHWA uses the information for policy analysis and for its annual study, Highway Statistics. VDOT contracts with the University of Virginia's Weldon Cooper Center for Public Service to conduct this survey.
The Cooper Center depends heavily on your answers to provide the information required by VDOT and FHWA. In addition, the center uses information from the Auditor of Public Accounts' Comparative Report of Local Government Revenues and Expenditures and from other sources.
