Project Description
Stevie Olson worked on ‘cost of roads’ research begun in the spring with his HKS student team for the MA 6th Congressional District Office. Stevie expanded upon financial costs associated with the road economy uncovered during the team’s work in Lynn. He also explored and analyzed costs associated with new technologies that will necessitate new considerations in the future.
