CTB Member Mark Merrill Tours Crozet Tunnel

New Staunton District Commonwealth Transportation Board (CTB) member Mark Merrill visited the region on June 30 to tour the Crozet Blue Ridge Tunnel. The CSPDC hosted Mr. Merrill with VDOT, Staunton-Augusta-Waynesboro MPO Policy Board members, and CSPDC Chair Frank Friedman. City of Waynesboro Parks and Recreation Director and Tunnel Foundation Chair Dwayne Jones led the tour and shared a map of eastern Waynesboro, the Tunnel, and Rockfish Gap where so many transportation corridors converge. Past CTB Board members have been integral to the restoration and re-opening of the Crozet Tunnel. Waynesboro and Augusta County emphasized to Mr. Merrill the importance of creating more trail connections between the Tunnel and destinations in our region.
