Can stimulus money be used to blacktop a county road? If not it should be a priority for spending a little bit of tax money. The road leading south out of Rosedale to the county line road has not been repaved in years,just patch after patch. It is so rough now and has numerous pot holes along the sides that it is becoming dangerous and really bad on cars and tires. Why this road has not been be re-paved,not chip and seal, for several years is beyond me. I guess it is not important to anyone in Parke County other than the citizens of Rosedale as it leads to Vigo county and is probably seen as taking business out of Parke County. It also brings business into Parke County and in its present condition it probably isn't bringing much in now. Please use stimulus money and pave this road,Vigo County paved the Rosedale road from Sandcut north to the country line,why can't Parke County pave this road into Rosedale,it is a short stretch,and it would provide some make work at least to qualify.

It isn't maintained because its not on a covered bridge route. Parke county needs to catch up with the times and update the county roads. I'm tired of buying expensive vehicles only to have them last a short time. 10 miles an hour is max. speed on my county road.

i agree with marty that the bridge routes get a lot more attention then the rest of us are getting but its gotten to the point where they are alsmost impassible on the dry days , let alone the rainy and muddy ones. but one thing that we have to keep in mind is that the bridges and the bridgefestival are the only thing that is keeping this county alive. without its income , people would start seeing tumbleweeds going across roads. with the exception of racoon lake and turkey run , we have nothing. no interstates , no major stores , no major cities , no colleges , no trade schools , nothing. and with the way the states budget is going , its only a matter of time before the lake and turkey run are going to be either in the hole or shut down completely. i dont like the situation any better than the next person but its what we got and were just going to have to tolerate it
