After a few months of pause, Extension Out Loud is back with a two-part series, originally recorded in February 2020 about the history, maintenance, and engineering of local roads in New York State.

Part 1 with David Orr

David Orr, director of the Cornell Local Roads program joins Extension Out Loud. Do you know who maintains the road you live on or the road you drive to work on? Maybe you’ve never thought about it less there’s a pothole or snowstorm. Listen in to hear learn about the history, laws, and science of local roads and their maintenance. David is also a senior extension associate in the Department of Biological and Environmental Engineering at Cornell University.

    Part 2 with Jeffrey Griswold

    Jeff is the highway superintendent in the Town of Prebble. He joins Extension Out Loud to share his “soup-to-nuts” role in maintaining and repairing roads and responding to local emergencies.
