Washington County Supervisors are slated to approve the annual five year road construction program at tomorrow's meeting. County Engineer David Patterson says they have about nine-million dollars budgeted for the five year period. He says the amount of money they have to work with hasn't changed much since he's been in Washington County, but how much construction materials cost has skyrocketed. Patterson says to combat the price inflation, the county road department is at a minimum staff level. He says they've also saved money by replacing bridges with unique, and cheaper railroad car structures. Patterson's department is required to submit the five year road construction program to the Iowa Department of Transportation each year.
