VERONA, VA--- The Augusta County Board of Supervisors considered the Virginia Department of Transportation's six year plan for the secondary system of highways. The plan involves local secondary roads that need upkeep.

The plan includes 11 roads that need repairs. There will be money to fix those roads. It also includes 10 old and eight new roads on the citizen's list, which the board has gotten calls from concerned locals about. At the public hearing, several people spoke their concerns about routes 616 and 661. 661 is not on the six year plan, but 616 will have two roads funded for maintenance.

"There's a lot of needs in Augusta County and there's a lot of people out there that want their roads improved and brought up to the standards that we expect from our tax money and so there's all kinds of things that are pulling at the money," says James Elmore of New Hope.

The plan would go from July 1, 2014 to June 20, 2020.
