$2 Million in House Transportation Bill Designated for University of Virginia’s South Lawn Project

THE UNIVERSITY OF VIRGINIA’S South Lawn Project has made significant strides with the allocation of $2 million from the U.S. House Appropriation Committee for a pedestrian crossing over Jefferson Park Avenue. In announcing the allocation, U.Va. President John T. Casteen III (left) praised the work of U.S. Rep. Virgil H. Goode Jr. (R-Rocky Mount), a member of the House Appropriations Committee who was instrumental in securing the funding. “This project is another example of the significant impact of his work. Projects of this nature require effective collaboration among members of the local delegation,” said Casteen. Full story.
