The 45 Second Westland Roads Survey
This is Infrastructure Month, and on the next episode of WLND's "In the W" Mayor Wild will be sitting down with local leaders and infrastructure experts as we look at the needs in cities across the state, the costs associated with making the necessary repairs, and of course, how do we pay for it.
