it will take between 150000 and 160000 tons of rock and gravel to get the rural roads back in shape In a normal year this spring repair work involves about 80000 tons of the surfacing products As a result the cost of repair ing and maintaining Ccrro Gordo Countys rural roads this spring probably will run about also double the normal cost This cost could go even higher Davison warns because extra trucks will have to be put out to handle the increased re pair load Without exception the areas county engineers call the rural road conditions this spring the worst they ever have seen John Berry county engineer in Worth County since 1927 points out that spring breakups in spots arc normal on rural roads but that this spring the breakups went on for miles Normally Berry continued Worth County uses 80000 to 90 000 Ions of gravel during spring repair work This total could run as high as 170000 this year The cost for the repair work in Worth County this year could be as high as 120000 Last
