HOUSTON, Miss. (WTVA) - County Road 46 and 44 was paved, but last Monday city crews removed the pavement so they can replace it. After several storms, mud-covered both roads.
Larkin Gore has lived on County Road 46 for more than 30 years and said he’s never seen the road this rough.
Gore’s wife owns a beauty shop outside their home. He said she lost about $500 last week because of it.
“Ain’t no way they can get down here without pulling them down here,” he said.
Gore said multiple cars got stuck in the middle of the road and school buses failed to pick up kids outside their homes. He also helped multiple people get to the end of the street in his tractor.
Houston’s Supervisor, Bill Blissard said people shouldn’t have a problem commuting anymore because city workers covered the roads with gravel.
Residents said the gravel just isn’t enough. They said they wish city leaders gave them a heads up before starting construction.
Blissard reassured both roads will be fixed very soon.
