RICHMOND, VA (WWBT)- Transportation officials unveiled the state's billion dollar plan for the roads you drive on every day. In the state's six year improvement plan, the Richmond area has dozens of projects on the list.
If you sometimes wish your interstate commute wasn't so congested or that state road wasn't so bumpy, Virginia leaders say they feel your pain and are ready to take action. Drivers say there's no time to wait.
"With the traffic in the evenings and mornings, it gets piled up and built up. You can barely get through there," says driver James Miles.
He is all too familiar with the headaches at I-64 near the Ashland Road exit heading from Goochland to the Short Pump area. That's where state leaders want to widen the interstate from four lanes to six.
"It's a lot easier. Who wants to wait in traffic and sit in traffic?" said Jeff Wise.
He manages an Exxon in that area.
