As a city, county, and state we must get our roads built faster. Congestion on our roads reduces quality of life, reduces air quality, and makes our roads less safe.
In the far north, on the East side of I35W (my council district), we have gotten roads financed and roads are being built. On the west side of I35W we have a 125k people driving on county roads…
Over the last few weeks, we were successful in obtaining additional Bond dollars ($40M) for infrastructure projects on the west side.
We are not done. Over the next few months, Expect more dollars for roads from other sources and other jurisdictions. From there, we must streamline processes to deploy these dollars more timely.
We can reduce the time projects sit on government desks. We can start ROW acquisition in earlier stages. We can streamline schedules for utility relocates.
Let’s get our roads built and provide safe routes to school.
