On the very top of the foggy and windy Afton Mountain sits this memorial.
It is the VDOT workers memorial. VDOT stands for Virginia Department Of Transportation.
It is a memorial to all the state road workers who have been killed on the job. Did you know that many road workers are hit and killed on the job?
This is a popular overlook where people come to take pictures of the view. Which looks something like this.
So there is also a trash can there with the same logo. The memorial was paid for by VDOT workers & retirees, families of the dead, and businesses.
“The West has made people too time-conscious, not knowing where they are going but speeding to get there because time is short.”
