This road is typical of many dirt roads in the county. 4.6 inches of rain is not the entire story. When ditches get clogged, water has no where to go but out of the ditch and on to the road bed that then gets washed out. Last SPLOST, Jake Garner threw in money at the last moment to purchase a couple of back-hoes to "pull ditches". If the county can't keep the grass on the right-of-ways cut, I guess "pulling ditches" is out of the question.
i remember about 5 to 6 years ago maybe longer they subbed out the ditches to a outside company and all they did was take a road scraper and drop the blade down in the ditch and cleaned out the ditch it pushed the dirt back on the road then smoothed it out over the road ,dont we own some road scrapers ?cant our road dept do that? now there full again and my culvert is full now the water goes around the end of my drive and washes it away some body needs to be cracking the whip on these people ...
