A transportation funding plan that eliminates the gas tax and increases the sales tax in Virginia would put $3.1 billion towards 16 projects in the state. Included among the projects are the second phase of work on the Dulles Metrorail project and construction of a new Interstate 66/Route 28 interchange. "Every corner of the Commonwealth will reap the benefits of safer roads, quicker commutes and increased access to public transportation if this plan is adopted," said Gov. Bob McDonnell.
