Roadblocks A'Plenty in Nebraska
Leslie Reed writes, "In an unusual move, Federal Highway Administrator Victor Mendez, the nation's top highway official, came to Nebraska at the request of Sen. Ben Nelson to hear firsthand about the state's road woes.
"There seem to be a lot of trials and tribulations out there about the roads program in your state," Mendez said.
He got an earful. An overflow crowd of about 150 city, county and state officials, along with road construction engineers and others, turned out for the 3½-hour meeting."
