After stops at the World of Asphalt in Charlotte, N.C., and Washington, D.C., The Road Connection took time out from its current trip up the East coast corridor to pay a visit to the Construction Equipment Guide office in Fort Washington, Pa., on March 21.
“The reaction we’ve had so far has been great,” said Curt Peterka of The Road Connection, who has covered just over 10,000 miles so far with his Road Connection partner Andrew Gillman. “People are very interested to hear what we’re doing and see it as such a good, positive thing for everyone. So many jobs could be created by supporting and seeing money get directed towards the infrastructure jobs we need.
“We need to make the decision makers and politicians know where funding needs to go. Plus, you’re never going to hear anyone vote for more potholes.”
The Road Connection is a nationwide initiative to highlight the need for increased road and infrastructure funding. Since roads and bridges are essential to everyone, participants in the Road Connection range from leading manufacturers to industry organizations to media members to consumer groups.
