Supervisors’ Chairwoman Jane Dittmar (pictured second from right) wants businesses and commuters to be on an equal footing with VDOT during future discussions of major road improvements. Dittmar has shared her goals with fellow supervisors, including Ken Boyd (pictured left), Diantha McKeel (pictured second from left), and Ann Mallek (pictured right). The Commonwealth Transportation Board will consider the Rio-29 project and other features of a more than $203 million package at a June 18th meeting.
