I had a phone message last week from an anonymous caller who encouraged us to do an investigation into the condition of the rural roads in Davison County. The caller said we’d be shocked by what we’d find, and he suggested driving south on state Highway 37 and then west on 257th to see an example of what he’s talking about.
Just days before that call, we’d been told by gubernatorial candidate Dave Knudson that he’s been shocked at the condition of rural roads as he’s been out campaigning. Our discussion with him resulted in an editorial.
All this makes me curious about the condition of our rural roads. If you know of a particularly bad stretch of road, please tell us about it, and perhaps we’ll look into it for a future story.
