Road Improvements

Many improvements have already been made, such as removing rock on blind corners, widening several areas, evening out road beds to correct the road’s super, and removing brush along the road side. Over the next phases of road repairs, the City is planning on doing work on Steep Road, the Goose Creek Industrial area and providing topping to the entire subdivision roads.
