No state funding approved for road on Virginia side of The Pinnacle

Local

The Virginia General Assembly did not include funds for a proposed road on the Virginia side of The Pinnacle development when it passed this year’s budget earlier this month. 

Developer Steve Johnson asked the state to build a $10 million road so that he could develop the 350 acres on the Virginia side of The Pinnacle.

His plan includes a hotel with an indoor water park, an amusement park area, and an amphitheater. 

“Our position to the state is the city of Bristol, Tennessee paid for the construction of Pinnacle Parkway and as we know it today you see what happens,” Johnson previously told News Channel 11. “That’s our ask, you build the road and we will do the rest.”

News Channel 11 has reached out to Johnson for comment.
