Late last week it became official: The Star Solutions plan for I-81 is considered the best.

Once approved, big changes get underway. Here's a rundown of those changes. First, cars and trucks would be separate, with four lanes of traffic traveling in each direction. Interchanges will be revamped, some with "truck only flyovers."

A rail plan will be strongly efforted to divert some of the truck freight off of the road. As you travel along, you'll be charged a toll.

Originally those tolls were just for trucks. Now, the panel is supporting a policy of applying tolls to both cars and trucks.
