      • Bruh, read the article. It’s all about guardrails. I agree with you Patty. Vasco needs center divide much more than guardrails.

  1. How about picking up the mattresses and trash just inches away from each barrier upgrade? Trash and petroleum containers are slowly affecting the environment. The county needs to use some of that special .14cent gas tax on top of the dollar of gas taxes to upgrade everything about our county roads. These bandaid patches are a joke to our intelligence. They also take a toll on our gas mileage and vehicle repair bills. Stop diverting and start upgrading.
