Metro approves “roads to be paved” list

Posted on Tuesday, January 17, 2012 at 6:10 pm

The Metro Moore County Council unanimously approved a list of eight local roads budgeted to be paved in 2012. They include: Cumberland Springs Road, Main Street, Elm Street North, Hurricane Creek Road, Woosley Road, Crying Owl Hollow, Evans Road and Rising Moon Road.

Highway Department Manager Milton Ferrell told council members that they would begin repaving in the early spring. He also stated that crews would be out to patch the worst roads “as soon as the rain lets up.”

During the discussion, Ferrell mentioned that two roads had been dropped from the list at property owners’ request. Once approved by the Council, this transfers the responsibility of upkeep from Metro to the property owner. Those roads are Waggoner Hollow Road and Henderson Road.
