United States Air Force Capt. Jon Polston and Air Force 1st Lt. Scott Adamson, engineers attached to Laghman Provincial Reconstruction Team, inspect the underside of a bridge in Mehtar Lam, Laghman province, while traffic squeezes through the narrow pathway Sept. 7. The civil engineer team from the PRT traveled to the Jugi bridge in Mehtar Lam to asses the structural integrity following its recent completion, ensuring it will withstand the Afghan weather for years to come (Photo by Staff Sgt.

The Mehtar Lam PRT is in the Regional Command -East sector of Afghanistan, not far from Kabul. The road infrastructure in that area reminds me of the “you can’t get there from here” network in West Virginia… “reminds” may be too strong a word though.
