This means that our roads must receive appropriate regular maintenance to ensure that they operate at a high level today, tomorrow and well into the future. While we have a ways to go to meet this goal, we have begun the process of making improvements to those roads most in need. To further help us reach our goals, we ask you to please dive safely and always buckle up.
