CRESTVIEW — It's been almost two months since historic floods washed out a number of Okaloosa roads.
But the News Bulletin has received a significant number of comments about one road in particular.
"Are there any plans to fix the washed out roads like Oak Hill Road in Northeast Crestview?" Joe Maneen wrote on Facebook.
"Any word from the city on when they plan on fixing Oak Hill Road off of Old Bethel?" Amanda Ledford said in an email.
"Okaloosa County, why have you not fixed roads, dams and water runoff areas after the historic flooding in April?" Todd Lawrence wrote in a letter to the editor. "Roads like Oak Hill are still impassable. They continue to erode every time it rains because of no action by the county."
County Public Works officials say there is no timeframe on when these roads will be repaired and reopened.
“I don’t have a status on when that road work will be done,” said Clay Simmons, county division manager over roads and parks.
The department is determining whether the road qualifies for repairs with FEMA or Natural Resource Conservation Service funding, he said.
In the meantime, county engineers are redesigning the road.
“We want (the roads) to be able to withstand future flooding, if it should happen,” Simmons said.
Simmons said his office has received a “handful” of inquiries about the roadway's repair status.
“For the most part, everyone seems to understand that we have a lot of road work to do since the storm,” he said.
Meanwhile, Ledford and her family wait.
“There are a lot of residents that live on this road and (we are) having to travel quite a bit out of the way because of the road being washed out,” she said.
"... Spending more time and gas because of it."
