I'm going to try to post these in the order you said. It starts out in Leslie County where the roads are just wet until you hit the Harlan County line. From there it's snow covered until you get close to the mountain. You will see coal and log trucks parked because they can't get down 221. They had scraped one side of the road leading over the mountain.

Thank you G! You can talk about it all day, but a picture beats a 1,000 words.

Forward those pictures to someone higher up in the state highway department. Better yet send them the link to this page.

That's a damn shame. We pay taxes to have these roads taken care of. If Leslie can clean their part we can clean ours.

It's always been the same way on 119 at the Harlan/Bell line... Like two different worlds...

They are going to do as little as possible. That's how the state works.

That's ridiculous. That mountain should be a priority.
