RICHMOND – An additional fuel tax of 2.1 percent would be levied in western Virginia, including the Twin Counties, under a Senate bill that creates a regional transportation fund to help pay for improvements on busy Interstate 81.

The legislation sponsored by Sen. Emmett Hanger (R-Augusta) passed the Senate 24-16 on Tuesday. It would create the Western Virginia Transportation Fund to improve conditions on the state’s longest interstate, stretching from Bristol to Winchester – mostly two lanes in each direction.
