The Cross County Road department will be working on an $80,000 mitigation grant on CR 661 beginning late April of 2018. This is the fifth mitigation grant to help eliminate flooding of our roads since I took office in January of 2015.
In 2018 there will also be additional paving in the county. With the help of state aid we will be adding over 1 1/2 miles of new pavement. This will cost approximately $230,000.
The major causes of road deterioration are traffic and weather and we cannot control either. However, we will be adding several tons of gravel to our roads as weather permits. There are approximately 850 miles of county-maintained roads with about 810 miles of those gravel roads. Contact the judge's office at 870-238-5750 with issues that need immediate attention.
