We are aware of the vital service trucking and freight carriers provide to our citizens during the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak. The uninterrupted flow of goods is essential to our economy and quality of life. Trucking is a crucial component of our nation’s infrastructure and we are grateful for your ongoing efforts. Please accept our thanks and appreciation for all that you do. We regret the inconvenience, but it is necessary for the safe completion of the required construction, and to do so ahead of schedule for the benefit of all.
