Saving on Paving
Since we're all a' twitter today over transportation, I thought it might be interesting to look at an example of how VDOT can increase savings on road maintenance using the private sector:
If VDOT were to allow the private sector to perform more of the approximately one billion dollars of maintenance work performed on Virginia’s roads each year, the savings could amount to $285 million. An added benefit may be that the quality of the Commonwealth’s roads might improve.
It's a change even the paving lobby might find acceptable.
