Posted Nov 14, 2019 1:41 AM

Geary County is preparing to decrease maintenance on some rural roads that do not see a lot of traffic.

Commissioner Charles Stimatze said the roads have been identified by public works officials, and a resolution has been adopted. "Nine roads in the county that our public works and GIS have identified that only one or two people live on it. So we're going to change them to a limited maintenance road, which means we'll keep maintaining them but not at a level that there's a lot of public on the road."

Roads on the list include Old Highway 40 and Crider Road intersection, north from Burley Hill Road, Hoffman Road, K-57 and Stahl Road, west from Clark's Creek Road ( south of John Moyer's , north from Schmedemann Road, Ava Road and East 11th Street....the portion of 11th Street that was vacated beginning at the intersection of North Filley Street and East 11th street then proceeding east to the east line of the Railroad Addition to Junction City.
