Proposals to super-size I-81 threaten the Shenandoah Valley environment. Doubling the size of I-81 will increase noise, air pollution, greenhouse gas emissions, and will destroy hundreds of acres of farmland and forest. The more rational alternative, proposed by RailSolutions is a multimodal railway that will give trucks a more economical and more environmentally friendly ride through the valley. Visit RailSolution.org for more information.
