Lane county, Oregon: Fix ricketts rd from flooding, save lives!

      Creswell, OR

People and animals live on this dead end public county road, that floods every time there is an inch of rain (already 6 times this year). It is dangerous as well as illegal. Emergency vehicles do not have access and residents are often stranded. This is not only a safety issue to the people and animals on the road, but a huge inconvenience when you can't get to work. It's a public county road and it needs to be fixed! Or the county should provide alternate access through locked easements during flooding.

Fix ricketts rd from flooding, save lives!

      this impacts business. This road is access to a family business that I support.

      I have relatives that live on this road and fought flooding problems over many, many winters. If there is an emergency with my relatives during a flooding time, I couldn't access them to help.

      This road because of the railroad that acts like a dike, has flooded for years. It has gotten worse in the last couple decades, as the watershed area has been logged ad water runs off faster and that area floods more quickly. It is getting worse.

      I use this road often for both recreational purposes and also outreach opportunities, I really need it open 365 days a year.

      I cannot believe the county does not see the importance of maintaining this small road. The families that live there have surely paid enough in taxes to deserve to have it fixed. It is time for the county to address this issue once and for all. The minimal residents are just as important as the busy roads every where else in the county.
