Alliance for the Shenandoah Valley on proposed Interstate 81 improvements

interstate 81Alliance for the Shenandoah Valley lead Kim Sandum comments in response to today’s announcement from Gov. Ralph Northam regarding a legislative proposal that would fund improvements along the Interstate 81 Corridor.

“We applaud the Valley legislators and Governor Northam for moving to address the critical improvements needed for I-81. We support immediate safety improvements and maximum flexibility for long-term investments, rather than a costly one-size-fits-all approach for the entire 300-mile long corridor.

“Valley residents should not be asked to pay more without assurances that they will have a strong voice in decisions about I-81 improvements. We look forward to reviewing the details in the legislation.”
