California's Bumpy Path to Road Repairs

by Placerville Newswire / Mar 19, 2017 / comments

[LISA RENNER, Capitol Weekly]

California’s already poor roads deteriorated to a whole new level of disrepair this winter. Sinkholes have popped up throughout the state and major roads have closed because of damage.
