Thompson Funding Request for Lake County’s Chip Seal Program Included in Upcoming Highway Bill

Congressman Mike Thompson announced that his request for over $2 million for Lake County’s chip seal project to address county roads in Lakeport, Kelseyville, Cobb Mountain and Hidden Valley was included in the infrastructure package that will be marked up later this week by the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee. Thompson said Lake County roads are a critical part of keeping this rural area connected, and this funding would be used to improve 55 miles of county roads in the Fifth Congressional District.
