Are you happy with the roads and transportation in Virginia?

Dozens gathered to talk about changes to make it easier for you to travel around the state.

Various transportation departments met in Augusta County to hear from the community about these ideas.

VDOT held the meeting to brainstorm what changes need to be adopted.

This includes not only the roads, but ports, railways, airports and more.

VDOT Spokesperson Sandy Myers says no official plans were adopted tonight. They just wanted to hear from the people before they made plans for next year.

"Are you happy with the interstate with the way it is now? Do you want it widened? Do you want to keep it the way it is? Do you want to see it landscaped better? Do you want to see your primary roads widened? Do you want to see a new interchange somewhere? There are all kinds of things," said Myers.

She says the department will take these ideas and create a six-year plan. It will need to be adopted next June.
