Gov. Bob McDonnell has commissioned four independent audits to determine the status of Virginia's various transportation programs.
The governor says the audits are not meant to point fingers at past administrations. Rather, they are to determine if the state is using the best practices to address transportation issues.
McDonnell says the audits will look at planning, maintenance, research and public-private projects.
The audits are expected to cost less than $500,000, unless additional work is necessary.
McDonnell's office did not say when the audits are to be completed.
