MADISON COUNTY, Ala. (WHNT) – A few paving projects are expected to start in North Madison County next month.
It may be a dead end road that intersects with yet another dead end road, but Deer Chase Parkway is falling apart.
District 1 Commissioner Roger Jones says they hear complains about the area all the time. “We get more complaints than we have money,” Jones said.
The county is responsible for maintaining all the roads in District 1 outside of the city. Deer Trace Pky. is just outside New Market.
“We have a budget to pay for the repaving,” said Jones. “The problem is, this budget is not enough money to do all the repaving projects that we really need to do.”
Madison County Commissioners try to single out the worst roads, and take care of those as soon as possible. That’s why they will finally begin working to repave two rather bumpy roads in the next month or so.
One is Deer Trace Parkway, the other is Phillips Road.
Hopefully the county sees more funding though, because Jones says more needs to be done.
“We rake and scrape and try to save our money, and spend it as wisely as possible.”
Repaving those two roads near New Market will hopefully start in about a month. Madison County has a list of projects to complete before it can get to Deer Trace and Phillips Road.
Here is a list of which county road projects are currently in the works.
