It may be tough getting in and out of the Lost Plantation area for a while, but work planned for the Lockner Road entrance should make it easier once it’s done, according to Rincon officials.
City Manager Donald Toms said Ellis Wood Construction is mobilizing to do the work, since the company is working on some roads within the development.
“We’re waiting on a second construction company to provide us with estimates,” Toms said.
The current condition of the road requires extensive work, according to Toms.
“It has deteriorated to the point where the asphalt needs to be removed and the base needs to be repacked,” he said.
Council member Ken Baxley said there have been many complaints about the condition of the road.
Said council member Lamar Crosby: “It is in horrible condition.”
The city needs to coordinate with Rincon Police Chief David Schofield and Lost Plantation residents so they know to use the other entrance while the work is going on, Council member Reese Browher said.
The city expects to spend no more than $10,920 to have the road repaired.
