comment : Off

The Commonwealth Connector project team, in efforts to inform the community along the existing U.S. Route 460 corridor of the new road, exhibited under the City of Suffolk tent at the city’s 36th annual Peanut Festival. This autumn festival attracts residents and visitors throughout Hampton Roads and neighboring areas for a four-day event that embraces local agriculture, businesses, and community issues.

Festival-goers were eager to learn more about the Commonwealth Connector and the team was able to answer questions and provide informational materials.  Attendees expressed excitement about the forthcoming alternative to the existing U.S. Route 460, as many travel this highway regularly.
