BAGHDAD - Capt. Steven Belford, Pineville, La. project manager for 225th Eng. Bde., speaks to the Maya Road contractor while conducting a final inspection before the road opening Aug 1. The 120 day project turned a pothole haven into a newly finished access road that will be used for military and Iraqi civilian traffic driving along the route. "It's easier to travel and will keep military traffic out of local cities," said Belford.
