We cannot continue to rely on the funding and methodology used in the past to maintain an up-do-date transportation system for the future. Hampton Roads has one of the finest seaports in the world, but no major international airport to complement its services. Northern Virginia has world-class airports, but its highways are ranked among the worst in the country for their congestion. Roanoke has great economic potential, but Highway 81 needs expansion and a modern regional airport would be ideal. Virginia must promote and improve privatization, deregulation, intermodalism, planning and technological leadership to build a transportation system supporting future economic progress.
