Hmmm. Despite transportation bonds passing regularly, annual road maintenance budgets, federal highway subsidies….

We get this.

I could hear the meeting now. “What is every possible wish list item for every overpass, underpass, culvert, and ramp you could want? How much would it cost, worst case estimate? You know, inflation could return, so we should double the estimate, just to be on the safe side.”

Ta Da!

But of course! Higher tolls, selling the roads and hiking the gas tax will fix the problem!

I swear these guys must take us for complete morons. Too bad that with regard to at least the 55% of the population who votes them in, they’re right.
