Study of Carroll's gravel roads called for

February 10, 1999|By John Murphy | John Murphy,SUN STAFF

The Carroll County commissioners asked yesterday for a comprehensive study of the county's gravel roads to assess the need and cost of paving them.

The board also voted to keep paving projects for Leppo and Turkeyfoot roads alive for the 2004 and 2005 capital improvement budgets.

Commissioner Julia Walsh Gouge called for a comprehensive plan to address the gravel roads instead of "piecemeal" solutions.

Commissioner Donald I. Dell agreed: "We need to have a more detailed plan." He estimated the cost of paving all gravel roads could cost as much as $10 million.
