Loudoun Chamber Hosts Virginia Transportation Secretary Layne for ”State of Transportation” Forum

Loudoun County, VA – Virginia Secretary of Transportation Aubrey Layne and Prince William County Supervisor Marty Nohe, Chairman of the Northern Virginia Transportation Authority, will headline the Loudoun County Chamber of Commerce’s 2015 “State of Transportation” forum on Thursday, April 29, 2015 at the Washington Dulles Airport Marriott. 

In 2013, the General Assembly adopted an historic transportation funding bill that provided the Commonwealth and Northern Virginia’s localities the funds to reduce congestion and improve the road and transit infrastructure statewide and in Virginia’s most populous region. State lawmakers also mandated that funds spent by state and regional authorities must be spent on road and transit projects that will reduce congestion and enhance economic competitiveness.  

“An efficient regional transportation network is essential to Loudoun County’s and our region’s economic competiveness and quality of life. Secretary Layne and Chairman Nohe are leading the process, at the state and regional level, to ensure Virginia’s tax dollars are being invested in those projects that give us the biggest bang for our bucks,” said Loudoun County Chamber’s Government Affairs Manager, Brian Fauls.
