C'mon Wolf... I know you don't like McDonnell and have read your contention about the light rail... but "worst" .. you're saying he's even worse than those two guys?
Yeah, well it is personal with these toll projects. Kaine was worthless and got nothing accomplished. Wilder never reall did anything that personally affected me in this maner. Don’t fall for it. None of these tunnel/toll projects were ever intended to address congestion. At it’s core, this is an AUSTERITY MEASURE by VDOT on our backs. In the Midtown/Downtown Tunnel project, they’re forcing commuters to pay for their past financial mismanagement. When ERC (private company) assumes the maintenance & operation costs for the tunnels, VDOT will save millions a year in current maintenance costs, A BILLION in interest over the term of the plan, and many millions more in payroll and other operating costs. It will cost us $21 BILLION in tolls to make this happen, and they’ll keep charging us the same taxes, free to spend their savings on the Coalfields Expressway or anywhere else in the state, or even on another PPP giveaway.
