Future Interstate 81 Committee to hold public meetings on improvements

Local

Now that a funding plan is passed for improvements for Interstate 81, a soon-to-be created Interstate 81 Committee will hold public forums for improvement ideas. 

The Virginia General Assembly approved Governor Ralph Northam’s amendments to begin funding more than $2 billion in improvements for the road. 

News Channel 11 has learned a committee will be formed and they will hold four public meetings. The committee will forward those ideas to the Commonwealth Transportation Board for final approval.
