A few weeks back, we asked you, our trusted friends and supporters, to send us a question or two that you would like to ask your fellow Americans. We wanted to poll our audience to see what was interesting to those following this project. The response we got was wonderfully thoughtful and enthusiastic – thank you to everyone for your responses!
Below is our list of questions that we will be asking as we travel across the country with Project Highway HabitUS, which will continue to grow as we go along. It’s not too late, so if you have an idea for a question you do not see represented below, please leave a comment or write us a message.
