New rock for County Roads
Trinity Standard -
GROVETON — From the Davy Crockett Forest Resource Advisory Committee, several roads coming out of or going into the Davy Crockett National Forest had quite a bit of construction. Jimmy Brown, Commissioner of Precinct 4, attended several meetings of the Resource Advisory Committee (RAC) to gain knowledge of obtaining grants, for these roads. These grants are generated from the National Forest Service and are meant to benefit Federal Lands. Since the benefiting roads, must be for the National Forest, the roads that had construction didn't necessarily have large population. The grant money and processes bared no expense to Trinity County. Louisville Road, completed back in 2011, had 5,100 tons of Limestone surfaced and seven culverts replaced. Womack Road, recently completed, had 1.5 miles of Limestone surfacing starting at the junction of FM 2262, going east. North Possum Walk Road, off of FM 358, is scheduled to start construction Feb. 4. They expect 6,600 tons of Limestone rock to surface 4.166 miles of the road. Brown spent several years trying to obtain these grants for the benefit of the county.
