Fairfax County Parkway to Get Presidential Visit
By Michael D. Shear
President Obama and Virginia Gov. Tim Kaine will pay a visit to the site of the final segment of the Fairfax County Parkway tomorrow in an effort to highlight the potential impact of billions of new dollars for infrastructure projects.
Obama and Kaine, who is also the chairman of the Democratic National Committee, will go to the Engineer Proving Ground, where the last leg of the parkway is under construction.
Construction of new roads and repair of old ones has been a struggle in Virginia and elsewhere as states find themselves without the funds to pay for the expensive construction.
Obama has said the infrastructure spending in the stimulus bill that passed the Senate and House in different versions would help create millions of jobs.
