    are rural areas that are shrinking in population. They're not turning major thoroughfares into gravel. They're turning areas very few people use into gravel.

    Having top-of-the-line roads everywhere in the country may sound nice, but it's unnecessary.

    People panic too much on this site.

      My county usually does hills and corners where it washes really bad. I live on a straight stretch, but corners that wash are within 0.25 miles of my house. They paved one of them 10 yrs ago. The other will get paved now since my dad was voted off our township board of supervisors. He didn't push for it while he was on because he didn't want it to look bad.
      They pave the hills and corners because it saves money in the long-run, because they don't have to put new gravel down every time it rains.
