Transportation

virginia-traffic-transportation-tidwell-delegateOne of the biggest issues facing our district is transportation. We all know the commute in Northern Virginia is bad- and now we have proof. Forbes places the Washington DC area as being the third-worst in the country, with an average of almost 40 minutes per commuter being spent in traffic. From absurd daily congestion on our roadways and highways to substandard and unreliable mass transit, Northern Virginians are subjected to delays and frustration. As Delegate, I will propose a plan to alter the way transportation is funded across the Commonwealth to ensure every area is getting appropriate funding for their roads. This means looking at transportation funding from a new angle; not an angle of partisan politics or political favors, but through the lens of what the people of Virginia need.
