Video: Local Company and Zabul PRT Control Erosion at Highway 1
Highway 1 is one of the most heavily used roads in Afghanistan and its upkeep is essential to smooth day-to-day operations of both ISAF and Afghan locals. When locals noticed one section of the highway was in danger of falling, crumbling into a nearby river, U.S. forces and a local Afghan company started a project to preserve the road.
