Boone County Faces Many Transportation challenges…and Opportunities:

“In today’s world, transportation dollars are not sufficient to take care of all of the needs. If we can work smarter through proper planning and implementation of technology, improvements to transportation infrastructure can be done cheaper and more efficiently and with less impact to property owners.”
