Road Chatter - the Cornell Local Roads Program monthly e-newsletter

View from the road

Welcome to the first edition of the monthly electronic newsletter from the Cornell Local Roads Program. This brief update will let you know our doings and provide you with local and worldly information on roads and streets. Most of the items in the bulletin will have links for more detail available on the web. We are still publishing the quarterly Nuggets & Nibbles newsletter with more in-depth articles and resources. If you have a new idea, website, success story or other brief announcement, let us know, and we can add it to the Road Chatter. We will send it each month to everyone on our mailing list who has email and post the bulletin on our website:
