Too much repaving?

For years I've listened to Rhode Island talk radio hosts and listeners complain about the condition of the state's roadways, lamenting that officials won't do more to bring them up to the standard of neighboring states. I've posted plenty of pictures myself of the potholes that dot our fair Ocean State.

Perhaps that's what made John DePetro's statements at the end of his Jan. 6 show on WPRO so surprising. He basically made the argument that leaders will have all kinds of money to throw around if new truck tolls are installed. With all that extra money, there will be too much road construction going on across the state, he said, causing traffic delays for years to come.

Whether you're for or against truck tolls or any other future tolls, I'm not sure the best argument against them is that the state will have too much money to repave too many roads.

I can completely agree with your points as it's the same way things are going around. No clear path was still mentioned and the constructions are said to be going with intention focusing the traffic issues prevailing for years. I was used to suffer due to the traffic when I'm working as a faculty of college, but now I have some relaxation as I'm doing professional resume writing job from home. I hope the problems of many sufferers will be solved sooner rather than later.
