Randy on Gov. McDonnell’s “Super NoVa” Study
We were very excited to hear the news this morning about Gov. McDonnell’s “Super NoVa” transit study to ease the congestion in Northern Virginia. Randy himself was motivated by the news this morning, penning the following statement in an email to his staff:
While road improvements to our congested roadways are critically needed in our region, I applaud Governor McDonnell’s leadership to launch the “Super NoVa” transit study that will include Frederick, Clarke, and Loudoun Counties and establish a baseline of current and projected commuter traffic patterns. I anticipate that this Study will provide important findings that can be used to establish a new formula for capital transportation improvements that will allow for our worst roadways to be improved while providing a greater focus on realistic transit opportunities.
As the study proceeds, more information will be available on the Virginia Department of Rail and Public Transit’s web site www.drpt.virginia.gov.
We’d like to know what you think about the project in the comments section below.
