Representative Avery Bourne encouraged work to be done on Route 48 sooner rather than later. She says that it’s going to take more than road work to fix the highway.
Representative Bourne continued, stressing that it never hurts to talk and encourage good driving on top of everything else.
Representative Bourne did touch on FOID cards during her recent visit with Regional Radio News saying that it needs to get tackled soon. Bourne says there were two competing strategies at the Legislative Session.
If you chose to give your fingerprints it would have been a lifetime FOID card, Representative Bourne said, but again that never made it to the floor.
Part of Route 48 is expected to be repaved in 2023. The ISP is looking to increase patrols on the route in the near future.
