Dear Prince William families, friends, and neighbors,
We recently returned home to Prince William County after spending two months in Richmond for the 2015 legislative session of the Virginia General Assembly. In the next few days, I’ll update you on the legislative session, but I’d like to update you now on several time-sensitive VDOT issues,
POTHOLES: As we move beyond the winter weather, we’ve observed a number of potholes on Prince William County roads. This is an inevitable occurrence that results from natural freeze-thaw cycles, and VDOT has a notification system so that citizens may report potholes for follow-on repairs. If you see a pothole, you may submit an on-line report to VDOT at http://www.virginiadot.org/travel/citizen.asp, or you can call 800-FOR-ROAD (800-367-7623). VDOT will then schedule repairs as soon as humanly possible. Let’s keep the VDOT repair trucks rolling!
DRIVE TO DONATE: Transurban, the operator of the I-95 and I-495 Express Lanes, has announced that they will donate the value of all tolls collected on March 21 on NOVA Express Lanes to area first-responders. In our case, proceeds will be donated to the Prince William County Department of Fire and Rescue. Commuters simply need to drive as normal, and Transurban will donate all toll proceeds on March 21 to our local first-responders. More information is at www.ExpressLanes.com/drivetodonate.
CONTACT US: Now that I and Legislative Aide Ryan Galloway have returned home from this year’s legislative session, we may be reached at our legislative district office number (571-264-9983). For email, I’m at DelRAnderson@house.virginia.gov, and Ryan is at RGalloway@house.virginia.gov. For emergencies, my home phone is 703-730-1380, and you should feel free to call me there if your need is urgent and can’t wait until the next business day. Thank you for the privilege of representing you and your family at home and in Richmond. Now that we’re back home, we look forward to seeing you at your events and in your homes!
RICHARD L. ANDERSON
Delegate, 51st House District
Virginia General Assembly
