Works Superintendent for Wheatland County.
“The first priority is to figure out which ones are
worse, and then prioritize those based on traffic
flows, and traffic volumes, and firstly divide them
into categories that way.
Secondly take those and fix the ones that are
easier to do first, where you get the most bang for
your buck, and do the more difficult ones as time
and circumstances permit.”
