All of the information below comes from the town's website:

Road improvements continue in Oxford despite the downturn in the national economy. Of the 120 miles of roads in Oxford, some are in need of repair, and others require new safety features such as traffic lights, stop signs, turning dirt roads into paved ones and implementing new drainage systems for water flow issues. Dangerous curves, narrow roads, shoulder ditches, new warning signs and road patching also continue at the same rate as the budget year 2008, at no extra cost to tax payers...
