Rucker Road


Lompoc, Please!


Please extend East Central Avenue straight to highway 246. This would create a perfect line to and from the city, saving many miles of going around the city and a savings of gasoline. Also finish the Rucker Road bridge that was lost in the big flood! Lompoc needs the upgrade now.
