Incremental approach for I-81 transformation proposed

Republican Delegate Chris Saxman from Staunton has proposed a bill that would prohibit the use of tolls and separate truck lanes on Interstate 81 through Western Virginia before a test project using available funds is completed, as reported here ("New bill would throw out toll plan," 1/31/2004) in the Roanoke paper.

Meanwhile, on up the interstate in Pennsylvania, the speed limit has been lowered back to 55 on Interstate 81 in the Carlisle area, as reported here ("Speed limit on I-81 to drop to 55 near Carlisle tomorrow," 1/29/2004) in the Harrisburg, Pennsylvania paper. I wonder why no one is proposing that in Virginia.
