Improve roads while growing communities

The 6th district is home to both rural and suburban areas that need infrastructure improvement. With all of the pressure on   I-70 as the country's main east/west conduit it may be useful to consider, in addition to the repair or replacement of aging bridges and roads, the upgrade of Highway 36 to interstate.

While this may divert some traffic from 70, it would provide opportunities for growth to communities along the route which may include the attraction of manufacturing plants to the area. Upgrading this would not only grow communities, but provide another option for those traveling across our state.
