At the Montgomery County chamber’s monthly “Eggs and Issues”, Thomas DiGiulian with the VDOT Salem District spoke to an early morning group about transportation in the New River Valley. While he spoke on a number of topics, it seems timely to share with you readers the status of some higher profile projects happening in the area as students head back to school and we see the last of summer’s lighter schedule.
Help our NRV partner – the New River Valley Regional Commission – recognize the people who make an impact in the New River Valley!

Award recipients will be honored at the Commission’s Annual Dinner in May 2016. Please click on the links to nominate candidates for Champion of the Valley (elected official), Citizen of the Valley, and Friend of the Valley (outside the region).
Before the survey closes on February 5, we want to hear from you about the region’s most-used bus stops. The survey (https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/MPOTransitStudy) will take about 5 minutes to complete, but the data we collect will inform the region’s transit system stop improvements in the years to come.
