Tired of the traffic? With congestion a growing concern in Lorton, the South County Federation has created a list of transportation priorities, which will be voted on at their meeting on Tues., Sept. 10, in the South County High School library.
“The inadequacy of our transportation system is apparent from the daily experiences of our citizens,” reads the resolution. “Traffic congestion costs residents and businesses time, money and peace of mind and creates negative impressions.”
The list will be sent to Mount Vernon District Supervisor Gerry Hyland, the Northern Virginia Regional Transportation Authority and the Virginia Department of Transportation.
