CROSS COUNTY, AR (KAIT) - Cross County officials are making it their mission to prevent flooding issues on some of their roads.
According to Cross County Judge Donnie Sanders, they're working to prevent flooding issues on County Road 661.
"We're doing a little bit of ditch clean up right now," he said. "Not to the extent that it will be done if we get the grant; but we do have some spots where the roads--because they were under water--the gravels been swept under the ditch. And we're cleaning up some of that and doing a little bit of mopping out now."
Sanders said the project will become more extensive once they receive the 50/50 matching grant.
He said they're hoping to receive it in early July.
