County supervisors go on road tour

By Nicole Major, Ledger staff writer | Sep 27, 2017

The Jefferson County Board of Supervisors went on a road tour Monday and assessed the progress of Germanville Road.

“The patching looks really good; crews did crack sealing,” supervisor Lee Dimmitt said.

“We wanted to see how the roads held up with the heavy rains that previous week, and overall, they did well,” supervisor Dee Sandquist said. “The moisture will help with the ongoing road maintenance of the gravel roads, and the pavement looked good also.”

The supervisors toured the intersection of Glasgow Road and Osage Avenue.

Dimmitt called the area “problematic,” and referenced a recent accident where one vehicle T-boned another due to poor visibility.

“We would like to see a flashing yellow light there,” Dimmitt said. “We’ve told [county engineer] Scott [Cline] that we want something done there, and as far as I’m concerned, a light would be the easiest way to do that.”

Sandquist agreed.

“It’s certainly worth considering if it will help people slow down,” she said.

Dimmitt said that Cline is researching options for the intersection, and would report back to the supervisors during the next meeting.

In other road news, Dimmitt said the recent rain had slowed progress on the Batavia bridge project, but that it should be completed around the end of October.
