Opposing opinions about 211 bypass

Luray panoramic

August 19, 1965 — A hearing held here last Thursday by the Highway Department to get local opinion on a proposed U.S. 211 bypass for Luray failed to develop any concrete results except to point up differences in opinion as to the effect of such a bypass on local business.

Representatives of the Luray Caverns strongly supported the opinion that the bypass would benefit both the Caverns and town while others were just as insistent that a bypass would shunt potential business around the town and concentrate it at the Caverns where the bypass under present routing would terminate.
