JACKSON LAKE ROAD PATCHING
Patching has taken place on Jackson Lake Road. The patching is very rough and the job was done sloppy. It is hard to believe that there was 2 days
of work in the patching that was done. The patching was done in 2 places—from Hwy
16 go on
Jackson Lake Rd.
Right after the public boat ramp and right after Martin’s Marina you will see the patching.

The transcripts of the minutes for the last few months do not show that this work was approved. The
BOC did approve putting out bids and authorizing the engineer to get State DOT
funds in order to get Jackson Lake
Rd paved. Jackson Lake Rd.
from Hwy 212 to Hwy 16 is a little more than 6 miles long and the engineer
estimates it will cost over $1.7 million to resurface. He is hoping to get $600,000 to help with the cost.
This road was not on the original SPLOST list
that citizens voted on. The question is,
why spend all this money on patching when the engineer said the road would be
torn up and redone when it was paved? That
would be similar to painting the barn before you tore it down.
