Davis Road residents in Svea want better maintenance

Published: Monday, July 22, 2013 at 02:35 PM.

Mixed in with rocks — some jagged enough to embed in vehicle tires — was metal debris including railroad spikes and pieces of hardware that fell off trains.

Although the county cleared much of the rocks and debris several years ago, ongoing maintenance and heavy rains reveal pockets of the sharp rocks and occasional pieces of metal.

Hazel Harper said the county has replaced five of her tires, though a request for reimbursement for a tire perforated by one of the sharp ballast rocks was denied.

"Every time I go into Strickland Tires, he laughs and says, 'They graded your road again, didn't they?'" Harper said.
