VIRGINIA (WAVY) - A new report ranks Virginia's roads at the bottom of the barrel.
The American Society of Civil Engineers gave the roads a D+. Some say it's a wake up call, while others say it's confirmation of what needs to be done as the Governor reviews a major transportation funding bill on his desk.
McDonnell has until the end of business Monday to either sign, veto or make amendments to a major transportation funding bill.
WAVY.com spoke to drivers in Hampton Roads who agree the roads are in poor condition. One driver said taxpayers pay a lot of money when there is a barrage of potholes on the interstates.
Others hope McDonnell makes the right decision when it comes to transportation funding and the roads. Virginia wasn't the only state to receive a low grade. North Carolina received a D-, while Maryland received a C-.
When asked what Virginia motorists would rank the roads, they gave them an F. The report also found motorists pay about $250 per person in vehicle repairs.
Police say a 2-year-old and a 23-year-old Navy sailor based in Virginia were killed in a crash on Interstate 64 in southern Indiana near Corydon.
