The Chambers of Commerce in four localities want no more delay in building the western bypass. The Charlottesville Regional Chamber of Commerce has joined forces with the same groups in Lynchburg, Danville and Roanoke. They sent a letter to Governor McAuliffe and Transportation Secretary Aubrey Layne saying the western bypass will improve safety and access. The Chambers say the environmental impacts can and will be managed properly. They want the McAuliffe administration to proceed without delay.
