Richmond, VA: Gov. McAuliffe signs law to allow food trucks in Virginia to set up shop on state roads

RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — Governor Terry McAuliffe is serving up a huge victory for food truck vendors across the Commonwealth.

Governor McAuliffe signed a law yesterday that will give food trucks across Virginia greater access to roads where they can set up shop. The law allows food trucks to set up on state-maintained roads. Before this, they were only allowed to operate on private property and roads.

Many food truck vendors believe yesterday was a landmark event in the history of American street vending.

Before food trucks line up on Broad Street, though, VDOT has to develop regulations outlining when and where these trucks can do business.

A timeline for that has not been released yet — But we’ll keep you updated.
