Gage County looking into overlaying some blacktop roads

The Gage County Board of Supervisors are looking into the possibility of a $4 million road bond issue to overlay almost 30 miles of blacktop highways in Gage County. Wednesday, April 3, the board will meet to potentially start the ball rolling for a bond issue to pay for a 2.5 inch overlay on 29.5 miles of Gage County’s 156 miles of asphalt road.

The Filley to Adams blacktop, the PWF road west of Wymore and the Wymore to Liberty blacktop were the ones noted as needing an overlay and will likely be on the bond. There were other roads considered, such as the Odell blacktop and the Liberty to Virginia road. The board will then meet with the Gage County Township Association on Thursday, April 4 and will likely be discussed with the elected officials from 24 townships.
