Capito highlights benefits of transportation bill in West Virginia

Senate Achieved Major Milestone with Passage of Long-Term Transportation Funding Bill
NITRO, W.Va. – On Monday, August 3,  U.S. Senator Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va.) held a press conference at the UPS Terminal in Nitro, West Virginia highlighting the Senate’s passage of a six-year transportation funding bill, known as the DRIVE Act, which is needed to fix West Virginia’s crumbling roads, bridges and highways, improve traveler safety and move goods throughout the state.

A long-term transportation bill is an important step towards improving West Virginia’s infrastructure, promoting economic growth and creating certainty needed to advance critical projects, such as Corridor H and the King Coal Highway. The DRIVE Act passed the Senate on Thursday, and the U.S. House of Representatives is expected to consider this bill following the August recess in September.
