County road and bridge repairs continuing

BENJAMIN – The recent heavy rains have caused significant damage to county roads and bridges. Potholes in many areas and washouts near Truscott and Gilliland are being repaired as quickly as weather allows.

County Road Superintendent Brady Hansen said “The damages effect hauling cattle, wheat harvest and other travel. We’re working hard to repair. Making repairs in the whole county is spreading resources thin.” If a particular area needs attention, residents can call their County Commissioner and the commissioners will relay the information to Hansen. He added “The priorities are safety and harvest. We’re getting to all as fast as possible.”
