RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Local officials in Virginia's urban crescent are calling on the governor and lawmakers to find solutions to the state's transportation funding problems.
Officials from 38 counties, cities and towns sent a letter to Gov. Bob McDonnell and leaders of the General Assembly urging them to address the issue.
According to the letter, 26 percent of state-maintained roads are in poor conditions. But there isn't any money for secondary and urban road system construction.
McDonnell spokesman Jeff Caldwell says the governor agrees that investing in transportation is vital. He says McDonnell has advanced several new revenue sources, such as exploring sponsorships for rest areas and highways.
