Any citizen or organization wishing to close any roadway, or portion of a roadway, within Middlesex County for a special event or activity must get prior approval to do so from four different agencies. This process can be lengthy, so please turn the application in 90 days before your event. The agencies that must approve the application are:
- County Administrator, 877 General Puller Highway, PO Box 428, Saluda, VA 23149
- Middlesex County Sheriff’s Office, 75 Oakes Landing Road, Saluda, VA 23149
- Local Virginia State Police Office, 6104 Fiddlers Green Road, Gloucester, VA 23061
- Local Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) Residency, 1027 General Puller Highway, Saluda, VA 23149
Once approved by the County Administrator, the application may be picked up and taken to the next approving official, the Sheriff’s office.
When the application is submitted to the local VDOT office, a check in the amount of $100 must accompany the application. (The $100 fee is subject to change)
