One thought on “Heavy Truck Traffic on Highway One

  1. I can’t believe something in California can get fixed/altered/improved for 200,000 bucks! So unless it’s really just one guy and a wheelbarrow filled with gravel who’s overcharging, Wahoo!! Somebody read a contract before they signed it and somebody’s got an eye on tax dollars spent. Can this be a new normal?
    Oh, all that aside, thanks for the good road update info, Kate. Always timely and always appreciated.
