We passed by this exit last weekend on our trip to Virginia. Would make a nice photo opportunity with the giant exit sign!

Not 100% on this, but I think it's similar to the Kia exit down south on I-85, Kia Boulevard, and the exit is strictly for the Kia plant.

Volkswagen Drive is going to the be the exit for the VW plant being built.

You are correct.
There will be a special parking for the VW's and there will be both city and VW representatives to look at the cars...

There were 82 the last time I counted and that didn't include the 2 VIP verts.
Thanks to all who showed up, timming was rough but was set to accomodate the city and county, not the working Joe...
It was a nice break in the day and the Jap Beetle was on the news...
(last 2 seconds...LOL)

They had a nice informational session on the plant.
The plant is like 1.92 Million Sq. FT...
Nice.
