The State Road Department Sucks!

Postby Demon Hunter » Tue Feb 09, 2016 9:14 am

Well the song I can't drive 55 fits this topic. Well I should say in Harlan County. I drove from Leslie County this morning and the roads had been salted and scraped. They were just wet and you could drive 55. Once I hit the Harlan County line it was like night and day. That 3 mile stretch of road to the bottom of the mountain hadn't been touched. I'm not talking about a early morning commute. This was at 8:30. Now the mountain had been salted and scraped and was decent. One can only assume that they cross the mountain make a u-turn and head back across. This is either laziness, negligence, incompetence, or a combination of the three. The photos I have will be forwarded up the chain of command.

They have always sucked. I bet they send out 7 trucks and only one of them works while the other 6 watch.

I bet I was right behind you Demon Hunter. I was so pissed when I crossed into Harlan County. It was pitiful! And out 221 towards Laurel was awful too according to a friend.

The two snow covered pics are once you cross into Harlan. The semi decent road conditions are as you go up the north side of Pine Mtn.

Yeah they were awful. And there was no reason for them to be covered like that. There's 3 miles of road from the bottom of pine mountain to the Harlan/Leslie line. It was pure laziness.

Well once again I drove through terrible road conditions because of inept snow removal by the state road department. It's causing people to be late for work, and on top of that it's hurting the economy. Multiple trucks sitting at the bottom of Pine Mountain because they cant go down 221. You have a variety of photo's sent to your email G with a description.

Just sent another pic from a co worker. The salt truck came back up the mountain instead of going down 221 where you see the coal and log trucks on the side of the road. Maybe the State road department doesn't understand that Harlan County stretches for miles down Straight Creek, or they think that Harlan ends at the bottom of the mountain and doesn't go into Leslie County.
