Seabees assigned to Naval Mobile Construction Battalion (NMCB) 74 are improving some key convoy routes in Afghanistan's Helmand Province.
NMCB 74's mission is to build short roads where vehicles often get stuck in deep wadis - dried up river beds. Five of these areas have been selected for renovation by NMCB 74's road crew detail. If left alone, these routes could become impassable for military convoys in the winter months during the rainy season.
"These roads are going to be a lot better than originally planned," said Lt. j.g. Christopher Waldrop, road crew detail officer in charge.
