Sabine County Commissioners, residents still seeking answers to sub-par roads

To follow-up on a story we had last recently concerning shotty road surfacing in Sabine County, the Sabine County Commissioners Court was informed last week that roads have still not hardened after going through a curing process.


The $2.4 million project, undertaken by the commissioners and their workers, is still leaning toward possibly sub-quality oil-sand material after testing.


County residents came before the Sabine County Commissioners' Court right after the project was complete in May complaining that their vehicles were sliding off or sinking into the soft material and other issues.


One commissioner even reported at last week's meeting that the surfacing was "crawling" off the road.


The oil-sand producer told the court the surfacing should begin to set up and harden when the temperatures begin to cool.


Needless to say, there are some unhappy residents and commissioners in Sabine County.
