Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT)The Virginia Department of Transportation says crews will be removing tens of thousands of potentially deadly guardrails from all across state, possibly hundreds of them along roadways in Central Virginia. According to media outlets, VDOT has been installing new guardrails across the 10 counties that make up the Lynchburg district, for the past 2 ½ years. VDOT isn’t saying whether the guardrails are safe or unsafe; they’re simply saying that they’re not an approved product. Last week, a judge awarded a Virginia man 175-million dollars in his lawsuit against Trinity Industries. Now the Lynchburg office of VDOT will be examining over 200 pieces of guardrails or guard ends, after working with contractors to locate them.
