Possible road repairs for Sugar Factory Road in the near future

Posted: Updated:

It looks like road repairs could be in the works for at least a five-mile stretch of Sugar Factory Road.
 
During this week's Scotts Bluff County commissioners meeting the board pushed for county roads superintendent Bob Bennett to pursue possible repairs down the road.

Bennett says his department has received $130,000 in state funds that could be used to work on the road from 27th street to Lake Minatare Road.

But Bennett estimated repairing only one mile could cost about $175,000.

Commissioner Mike Marker says the road does need touching up.
 
"During harvest the farmers, you know they use that extensively and this is becoming quite dangerous. It would be nice if we could widen it. But I know cost would be almost doubling it," said Marker.
 
Bennett says he hopes to get more state funding in the future and possibly start some repairs later this spring.
