SPOKANE-- Neighbors living in south Spokane County are riled up about the condition of their roads.

Neighbors living along a stretch of Gibbs road said it’s riddled with potholes and ruts. They said it has gotten progressively worse over the past years, and they want something done about it.

 “Last year the potholes got so bad, 40 of them outside my gate, that it was ruining my car,” said neighbor Roberta Mackay.
   
Mackay said recently, more people are driving along the road, and the impact has torn the road to shreds.

Neighbors have banded together, and asked the county to repair the road. “We need to have this road chip sealed; we've tried that for several years to get this done. I'd say the last six years and nothing has happened and the road keeps getting worse” said Mackay

Mackay said when they brought the matter to the county; commissioners proposed putting weight restrictions on the two mile stretch.

“That should not happen. They're gonna deny the people hauling hay to the horse barns, the people that have their horses there, from using this road,” said Mackay.

KREM 2’s calls to the commissioners were not returned Friday.

Neighbors said two meetings are scheduled for next week on the issue.
