Repairs made to scenic Old Clearsprings Road

By Ed Waggener

Old Clearsprings Road creek crossings were repaired this past week by the Adair County Road Department this week, making travel across the scenic connector lane much easier and safer.

Washouts from the February 6, 2008 floods had made travel difficult across the road until now.

Two of the three drybridges on the short road were repoured this week under the supervision of the ACRD's Gary Samuell and Terry Williams, who completed the work with the help of four Adair County Regional Jail inmate workers.

"Everytime there has been a heavy rain on Old Clearsprings Road," Lisa Lee, administrative assistant to Adair County Judge Executive Ann Melton said, "the creek crossings wash out, leaving huge dropoffs at the two crossings we repaired. The repairs should prevent some of the washout problems in the future. For now, travel is much easier across the lane."

The county crews used county equipment to clear the storm debris from the creek, Lee said. "The new backhoe really came in handy for the work," she said.

The county will receive approximately $3,600 in reimbursements from FEMA and state funding.
