State Del. David Ramadan (R-87th) sent a letter to Gov. Bob McDonnell (R) Aug. 22 urging him to start a new process for developing the hotly-contested Bi-County Parkway project to connect Loudoun and Prince William counties.
Ramadan, in the letter, states he supports “efforts to improve both east-west and north-south connections and believe[s] that it is not an either/or discussion.”
“I also appreciate this administration's attempt to begin the planning process for north-south corridors so that we do not find ourselves in a position years from now where we are once again trying to play catch up,” Ramadan states. “However, it has become abundantly clear that a complete and accurate analysis of the best way to proceed with a north-south connection is not going to be possible to complete during your administration.”
The state lawmaker who represents portions of Loudoun and Prince William believes months have been wasted on a “flawed process that created more questions than it answered.”
“A fresh start is needed under a new process. The process must be transparent and allow stakeholders to receive complete, clear and consistent information,” Ramadan wrote.
