The Greene County Board of Supervisors held a meeting with Virginia Department of Transportation to discuss the county six year plan on improving secondary roads.

The Board voted unanimously to add Mutton Hollow Road to the list of roads in need of repair. Bacon Hollow Road, already on the list, was put at the top as highest priority.

The two roads have received a lot of attention lately, because when it rains, the two areas experience flooding. This causes problems when emergency vehicles or buses try to pass through the flooded area.

There is a lot of work that will need to go into this six year plan before any constructions begins.

"Since the board has identified these projects as a priority, we will try to add them to the six-year-plan and allocate some funding to them, said James Utterback, VDOT, who's responsible for funding. "When we get the appropriate funding we will try to get them ready for construction."

Construction on Bacon Hollow Road is project to cost $2.3 million dollars.

Each year the county is allocated a certain amount of money from VDOT for their roads. Within the six year plan, Greene County is projected to have received nearly $5 million dollars for their secondary roads.
