Bad Road Found In Latexo

by Jessica Cervantez

In Houston County, some residents say their road is so bad that they fear that if an emergency ever happened, ambulances would not be able to make it on the road.

The road is County Road 2125 in Latexo. Residents say the commissioner has improved the road, but it still needs a lot of work.

They say the road is fine when it's dry, but if it rains they have trouble.

Ruth Cook, a resident, said, "Basically, a lot of the problems I see on the road is that it is not graded on, and the drop-offs that we have on the roads are not marked clearly enough to where people can stay on the road to let people pass to get by."

One neighbor has even taken matters into his own hands, and grades the road himself when he gets a chance.
