By Steve Marvin Transportation in Southern California, and specifically Orange County, holds the key to our present and future quality of life. Community organizations, in an effort to halt or at least slow development, cry for 'roads first* while the construction industry pushes on with necessary development to meet an ever increasing need. At the same time that new facilities and methods of transportation are conceived and constructed, ever increasing loads"on existing facilities hasten their demise. Roadways and highways fail under heavier trucks and concentrations of buses inconceivable during the initial design process. Maintenance dollars diminish with decreased fuel consumption while construction costs continue to increase even in a time of nominal inflation.
The Professional Liaison Committee was formed in 1981 with the objective of "an interest in obtaining a meeting of the minds between private practice and public agency on improving the development process in Orange County".
A special invitation is extended to al! Flood U. graduates to attend the June meeting of the Orange County Engineers Club. "Flood U." is the name given by George Osborne to the Orange County engineers who have spent part (or all) of their careers working at the County.
