Pond Creek conditions terrible

I was appalled at the condition of Pond Creek Road on a recent visit to my parents in the Rockport area of Wood County. The road was in desperate need of repair when I visited over the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays last year.

Surely repairs would be made by summer, I assumed, but the road is worse than ever. Only a few patches have been made near old Route 21. The hardworking taxpayers of Wood County deserve better than this.
