Virginia legislators have introduced legislation to establish tolling gantries along the 325-mile route between Bristol and Winchester on I-81 in order to raise money to improve the road. Tolls would come to roughly $37 for a one-way trip across the state, according to the bill. We agree with Bristol Virginia City Manager Randy Eads that “something” must be done about the traffic and road quality. But this isn’t it.
I support the proposed resort and casino because of the jobs and revenue it will bring to the City of Bristol and the entire region. Not just any jobs, but jobs where folks can work in a clean and safe environment. These will be good jobs, earning an average annual income of $46,000, much more than minimum wage. I see this as a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity we can’t afford to waste.
