Transportation in Virginia has been a mess for years, and this ensures it stays that way.

Just over the weekend, I drove from my home in Silver Spring to visit friends in Richmond.

The first 30 miles of my trip in VA was one giant highway construction zone aka finishing of the Wilson Bridge project and the I-95 HOT lanes all the way into Stafford.

The next 30 miles were the most pleasant with no construction and actually freshly paved roads and repaired/replaced road signs and guardrales *pinch me, am I in VA?*

The last 30 miles I think I drove over more pothole patches, general road debris from crumbling pavement and passed rusted leaning guardrails. Oh yes, I've left the maintenance districts of NOVA and entered the VDOT district that maintains greater Richmond.

Maybe it's a good thing this plan will continue to rob NOVA for 'rural' Virginia, since apparently Richmond is rural, or at least it's highways are maintained as such. What an embarrassment for Virginia and VDOT I-95 really is!
