Crumbling conditions

Commissioners plan discussion on county road conditions

Road work • Area landowners, including Jim Thiele and Tom Kester, fill holes on 516 Avenue, north of Clearwater. A group of approximately five landowners spent Wednesday evening filling potholes along the roadway since county road officials have not taken action to remedy road conditions. County commissioners will meet Friday to discuss a road maintenance plan.

Too many holes in the road to count.

That's the situation on 516 Avenue, in a one-mile section from the Elkhorn River Bridge, north to the intersection of 853 Road.

The condition of this stretch of county road isn't the only section of asphalt requiring attention.

Individuals who drive 851 Road on a regular basis compare driving on certain parts of the road, especially between 510 and 513 avenues, to "bouncing around on a pinball machine."

These are just two examples of disrepair of asphalt roads in the the area.

Antelope County Commissioners will discuss the state of county roadways Friday, during an 8 a.m. special meeting.

According to an agenda for the meeting, road superintendent Aaron Boggs will present a report, which will be followed by discussion on asphalt road conditions and improvement options.

Bonding options to fund road improvements is also listed on the agenda.

The meeting will be available via Zoom. As of press time, a link to the meeting, along with ID code, was not available on the county website.
