Transportation, Department of

Page 490, after line 45, insert:
"I.  From the amounts included in this item, notwithstanding any other provision of law, funding shall be provided to complete a three-mile stretch of improvements on Route 100 between Pearisburg and Dublin as had been included in the Fiscal Year 2008-2013 Six Year Improvement Program adopted by the Commonwealth Transportation Board."

(After 30 years of waiting, Giles County is once again requesting that funding be appropriated to complete a 3-mile stretch of dangerous, winding two-lane road on Route 100 between Pearisburg and Dublin. It has been on and off the VDOT Six-Year Program for many years, the latest effort removing it completely except for minor upgrades. It is a vital link from Giles County to Radford University, New River Community College and many large employers in Pulaski County. It is a safety hazard that has caused many fatalities through a number of years.)
