On June 27th, the Commissioner’s Court met to discuss a myriad of issues. One of them was the unstable road on Wingfield Drive located in the fourth precinct.
Commissioner Alvin Roberts headed up this issue and brought the movement before the county court. “The road is low, so every time Village Creek floods, it floods that road and it has flooded eight times since November… Every time we have to go back in and put material down to fix the road… Normally it would only flood once or twice a year, but this past year it has been an issue eight times.”
All of the commissioners have been looking to solutions to save some money when it comes to fixing this road that always has problems when it comes to rainfall. They believe they have found a solution in a company from Louisiana. “The is a company called LA Ash and they are donating 100 tons to us to test this. We still have to pay transportation, but we are going to try 100 yards of the worst section of that road to see if it makes a difference…. They’re biggest client in Texas is South Hampton.”
LA Ash is in the process of being put on the county’s vendor list and is projected to be tested on that stretch of 100 yards of road the week after Independence Day.
