State lawmakers representing jurisdictions along the Interstate 81 corridor have created a joint House and Senate Interstate 81 Caucus.
Delegate Clay Athey of Warren County says legislators up and
down I-81 have concerns about the highway's planned expansion and
decided to take a bigger role. He says that allowing tolls to be imposed on the highway will push local traffic from Interstate 81 to other roads, and could create more local traffic problems.
