More on “Fixing the Darn Roads”!
As you can imagine, “Fixing the Darn Road” dominated the conversation on the island during the Mackinac Policy Conference. The Conference wrapped up on Friday morning with a session on the topic between MDOT Director Paul Ajegba and HNTB Vice President and COMTO Michigan President, Regine Beauboeuf. The session was moderated by Lindsay VanHulle of Bridge Magazine and broadcasted live from the island.
The transportation industry is watching the development of the budget with great interest and will stand ready to support MDOT in delivering its program.
