There is a tire disposal collection project at the County Road Department facility. Tires will be collected between the hours of 8:30 A.M. and 3:30 P.M., Monday - Thursday.
Those with tires must load and stack their tires in the trailer. They must also get a form from the road department office. There is NO CHARGE for leaving the tires or completing the form.
No tires will be accepted outside the scheduled hours and failure to comply could force the county to close the tire disposal project.
Currently there is no end date for this project.
MESSAGE from COUNTY JUDGE
From December 1, 2018, through February 28, 2019, Cross County has received over 25 inches of rain. The excessive rain is hampering road maintenance, but our crew is concentrating on the most serious conditions. As the weather permits, we will repair the county roads.
In 2019 we plan to pave 1 mile of CR 724, providing state aid funds are available. Further plans to extend the paving of CR 367 and CR 303 are dependent on other state aid funds. Repairs to CR 147 and CR 652 are planned as well. In 2018 there were 1 1/2 miles of new pavement added in the county. There were also 0.7 miles of resurfacing of CR 652.
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.
