The Adams County Board of Supervisors took a trip down memory lane Tuesday as it remembered road projects completed in the last 10 years.

"Out of sight, out of mind. You forget what has been done and what hasn't been done," said Dawn Miller, the county's roads superintendent. "If you don't sing your own praises, who will sing it for you?"

In 10 years, she said, the county roads department has made improvements to 50 state bridges, repaired or installed 49 large culverts, and through a 2011 bond has addressed 78 miles of asphalt out of the 150 asphalt miles in the county.
