Funding to be sought for connector route

Discussion of an alternate traffic route through southern Henry County is shifting focus, and Martinsville City Council was asked to offer support.

The Martinsville Southern Connector will run along the west side of U.S. Route 220 from the North Carolina state line to the U.S. 220/58 Bypass.

The project has been in progress for several years, and in August a preferred route was selected because it was determined to have the least impact on residential and business properties. Now that the preferred route has been settled, funding is being sought.
