A recent press release describes Virginia’s launch of a website regarding “Virginia’s Road to the Future.” The new website is available to people who are interested in learning more about Governor Bob McDonnell’s proposal to increase funding for Virginia’s transportation system. It is available at www.VaRoadtotheFuture.com. The new website will be updated frequently.
Website visitors will be able to review background information and supporting documents about the comprehensive, long-term transportation funding plan proposed by Governor McDonnell. Website visitors will also be able to review key features on the site, such as:
- The proposed transportation project list,
- Frequently asked questions,
- Financial breakdowns,
- Legislative information, and
- Endorsements and supporters.
The proposed plan would provide more than $3.1 billion in transportation funding for Virginia over the next five years. This includes $1.8 billion for new construction. The proposed plan also ties future transportation funding to economic growth. Additionally, it would make Virginia the first state in the nation to eliminate its gas tax.
Many business, labor, and transportation groups have already announced their support of the governor’s plan. Supporters argue that the investment in transportation infrastructure will make Virginia highways safer by relieving traffic congestion. Website materials state that, since all Virginians benefit from Virginia’s transportation networks, all Virginians should appreciate the value the proposed plan would add to the commonwealth.
