VDOT’s new member

Posted on Tuesday, May 7, 2019 at 11:04 am

Stephen McKeever, the VDOT rep for the region, introduced George Bowman, the new superintendent for the county the Westmoreland Board of Supervisors and the community.

Bowman was among the supervisors that aided the county in its recovery after what was left of Hurricane Michael charged through. Previously a supervisor in the Hampton Roads District, Bowman was enthusiastic about his new posting, already having a list of assignments at the ready.

Montross Town Manager Patricia Lewis was happy to hear about McKeever’s acquisition of Bowman.

“I really think he’s going to get stuff done,” she commented in March.

”After our first meeting, we sent him a list of the problems we had around town, and later that week he was in town taking pictures at corners like Alma Lane and Rectory Road.”

The six-year plan also resurfaced once more, and unfortunately, like the last visit, it seems that there’s not enough money left right now for any projects to be added to it. While nothing could be added this year, McKeever indicated that next year might allow them to do so. In the meantime, Layton Road was, according to McKeever, going to be finished over the course of this six-year plan, which had gobbled up a fair amount of the VDOT money that had been sent to the county.
