County road work to begin soon
Updated on: 06.13.13

Chip-and-seal work is anticipated to start anytime on four county roads:

  • Helmsburg Road from Owl Creek to the railroad tracks in Helmsburg;
  • Green Valley Road from State Road 45 to the gravel portion of Green Valley;
  • Bean Blossom Road/Gatesville Road to Spearsville Road; and
  • Upper Salt Creek Road from Gatesville Road to Wells Hill Road.

These will be “full-pass” processes, so motorists will not be able to drive on either side of the road while it is being resurfaced. Motorists will be able to drive behind the spreader almost immediately, said Brown County Highway Superintendent Claude “Smokey” Presseau. “The contractor will make his best effort to cause as little disruption as possible,” he said.

Exact start dates have not been determined, but road signs will be posted before each is done, Presseau said.

Paving is anticipated to start in July. Those plans include parts of Lick Creek, Brown Hill, Bittersweet Four Mile Ridge roads. Roads were listed incorrectly in the June 12 paper.
