After heavy lobbying by Martinsville and Henry County, the Commonwealth Transportation Board rescinded its May 17th decision on the path of Interstate 73.
The board voted unanimously for a new route, farther east of Martinsville that doesn't take the path of the existing routes 58 and 220 south of the city.
It's the route Martinsville and Henry County wanted all along.
