California’s once state-of-the-art highway system, built during the three decades following World War II, is in desperate need of attention.
Year after year, the state’s highway system supports more than 300 billion vehicle-miles traveled by its’ close-to-50-million drivers. For years now, highway officials have been voicing concerns about disrepair and maintenance needed. Unfortunately Governor Brown has been focused on his $68 billion high-speed rail pet project with no completion date in sight instead of California’s #1 mode of transportation–highways. Taxpayers’ money would be better spent on a road to somewhere than a road to ruin.
