Notices

It is Spring, with Spring comes mud.  A lot of snow this past winter, maintaining safe roads during winter months, and deep frost help contribute to muddy roads when temperatures begin to rise.  For the next few weeks gravel roads are going to be muddy, soft, and hard to travel.  We will do our best to keep traffic moving.  If you live on a gravel road, plan your trips, the less they are traveled the more passable they will stay.  When weather conditions co-operate we will patch muddiest areas the best we can.
