KUNM Call In Show 6/25 8a:

Many New Mexicans drive long distances for work or to visit family and friends. Have you noticed that the roads are getting worse in some areas? A new report found that about 25 percent of roads in rural New Mexico need to be repaved or repaired. But funding for roads has fallen short in recent years. Poorly maintained roads are a hassle, and can even be dangerous. What do you see in your community?

Guests:
