Street Signs programs
Street Name Signs
The James City County (JCC) Subdivision Ordinance, Section 19-55, requires that permanent street identification signs be installed at all intersections of publicly maintained roads and intersections of public and privately maintained roads. All street signs in these locations must meet The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) standards. To obtain these standards contact:
VDOT Residency Office
4451 Ironbound Rd.
Williamsburg, VA 23187
JCC is responsible for replacing street signs on public streets due to vandalism, deterioration and knock-down. It is the responsibility of the Developer of a new street to install conforming signs. If signs other than the standard metal JCC sign are installed, it is up to the Developer or the Homeowner's Association to replace these signs.
Questions on traffic related signs should be addressed to VDOT.
Watch for Children Signs
Effective July 1, 1997, the Code of Virginia was amended to allow counties to request that the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) install and maintain "Watch for Children" signs.
