I don't remember Bush jr being a Democrat...and he sure ran this country in the ground...so I really don't get your whole party favorites argument...especially when Im talkin about a specific item (light rail extension) and why its not going into Portsmouth (McDonnells deal with ERC)
Bang up job Bob McDonnell did with the toll situation though. Kudos to the geniuses that had us paying $20 million a month ($300 million) for a cancelled project (expansion Rt. 460) that not one shovel of dirt has been lifted for. I don't care about who youre affiliated with so please don't argue with me about that nonsense. You asked about the train and I told you. Man was found guilty and has been walking around free before and after appeal. You can talk your American azz off, he should be in jail.

Hampton Roads is one of the most conservative areas in the nation (military), and yet you'd be hard pressed to find anyone with anything nice to say about McToll. And when you can unite the people in this area, you know you done f'ed up.

I always wondered what if they had built a light rail track down I 64 from Williamsburg to Norfolk and then to VA Beach. I would use it all the time but wonder how many others share my opinion ? I remember they tried a bus from Williamsburg to the oceanfront back around 2007 but no one rode it. I love visiting VB but getting caught in the backups is so frustrating.

I remember waaay back when I grew up in VB they had tolls on the HRBT and the expressway (264) . Not sure why they stopped tolling. But we would probably have the money to fund things had they kept it in place..

The reason why tolls were removed from those facilities was because the bonds used to build them were paid off.

And even after the bonds were paid off for 44, we still had the toll for awhile!!

I think about how convenient it would be to have light rail from the Peninsula to the Oceanfront quite a bit as well. I would ride it as much as possible, love going to the ocean beaches but the traffic is just stunningly bad.

How about I just blame you for the crime in Newark, didn't you live in Jersey at some point? That is just as relevant as your comment about Pink Jazz and HR residents. Hell, I don't think you even live here anymore... any lack of progress must be your fault. LOL
OMG, Coconut used to live in Jersey and bashes HR!? i never ceased to be amazed!
