WSLS-TV reporter Jim Shell interviews Virginia State Senator Mosby Perrow, Jr., and Delegate Kossen Gregory in Roanoke, Va., regarding the ongoing debate over the proposed route for a new interstate highway in Virginia. Gregory states that he and the other advocates for a southern route intend to raise objections to an engineering report favoring a northern route, prepared for the Virginia State Highway Commission by an outside consulting firm. Perrow declines to identify the group's specific objections to the report, arguing that it is too soon to reveal such information.
