According to the Greensboro News & Record, State Rep. Nelson Cole seems to peg the cost of road construction at $1 million per mile – no wonder we’re running out of money for roads…
Here’s the excerpt:
"The cost is going to equate to what it costs us to pave 20 miles of new road, and we just can’t afford to do that," said Rep. Nelson Cole, a Rockingham County Democrat who is chairman of a pair of key committees on transportation. He estimated that compliance with the law this year would cost at least $20 million, largely for computer upgrades.
