We are making significant headway in fixing our infrastructure. Combining local and federal dollars, our $2.3 billion Capital Improvement Project is the most comprehensive infrastructure revamp our region has seen in decades. The City is giving new projects the go-ahead and working to keep current projects on schedule so that we can swiftly work to improve our roads.
