The County roads by me are great. Unlike driving in Bloomington and Normal where dodging potholes is a sport and riding a horse would be smoother, the County knows they don’t exist to be developers or entertainers.
Where my road meets Leroy-Lexington blacktop a large hole was developing. Turning north either requires crossing the southbound lane or turning into rock. A hole was beginning to work it’s way under the road, so last Monday I emailed Jerry Stokes County Engineer at the Highway Department..
More rock was added the same day. I didn’t get a picture of the hole, this is what it looked like yesterday:
The rock is already starting to shift but I know the County will come up with a fix. They aren’t going to let the Leroy-Lexington blacktop turn into Hershey Rd.
If you are sick of the City streets, take a drive in the county. It will be a lesson in government doing what government is expected to do. (Limited government)
I wonder if the Republican controlled County Board is better government than the Democrats running Bloomington and Normal while pretending to be non-partisan?
