Transportation Solutions

Yes, this project is being pushed by powerful forces, but there is still time to put up a fight. Many of the residents in the proposed route are unaware of VDOT's plans (or have just learned about it) and have not had a chance to share their thoughts with legislators. Wasteful road projects have been defeated before, but only through citizens speaking up.

We will be continuing to provide you with up-to-date information through emails, community meetings, and postings to We hope you help spread the word by:


  • Your Congressman, Senator Tim Kaine, Senator Mark Warner, and your State Elected Officials to express your concern. We've created a letter-writing campaign that you can use.
  • Your local Board of Supervisors
