Tolls, the widening of Interstate 81, and rail.

All hot topics at VDOT's public hearing about the draft environmental impact statement.

Residents from all across the Valley came out to speak to VDOT about the statement and how it would affect the Valley.
Many think that some of the proposed options would negatively impact the Shenandoah Valley.

"Civil war battlefields historic sites, agricultural forest districts, farming, economy tourism all of those things would be impacted by a large road widening proposal," says Kim Sandum.

VDOT will take the remarks from all of the meetings held over the past week and then make a recommendation to the state.
