Sound Off: Is there any chance the Douglas/Franklin County line road going west of the new U.S. Highway will ever be paved? This road gets a lot of traffic and is very dusty.
Keith Browning, Douglas County public works director, provided this answer: Neither Franklin County nor Douglas County plans to pave this road in the foreseeable future. Franklin County maintains the road from U.S. 59 to two miles west, while Douglas County maintains the road for the next 1.5 miles west. The latest Douglas County traffic count was 44 vehicles a day about 2.5 miles west of U.S. 59. This represents a very low traffic count that would not justify the cost of paving or maintaining a paved road.
