RICHMOND — A chunk of Gov. Bob McDonnell’s transportation funding under the “Virginia’s Road to the Future” plan could go towards improving the overlap of interstates 77 and 81 in Wythe County.
Instead of finding free flowing traffic at the point where 77 and 81 meet, motorists can run into significant backups.
Under this plan, McDonnell would provide the Virginia Department of Transportation with $1.28 billion in new funding for 158 highway projects.
