1,000 roads in Clay County need resurfacing, report shows

$50M budgeted to repair streets in fiscal year 2018

CLAY COUNTY, Fla. – More than 1,000 roads in Clay County need repairs and leaders are working to prioritize which roads are the worst.

The county was given $5,000,000 to spend on resurfacing for the 2018 fiscal year. Only a few roads at the top of the list are expected to receive repairs.

One of the roads include Bottomridge Drive, a small road in southern Orange Park, where construction was planned to begin Monday.

The biggest road near the top of the list is County Road 315C, which is just north of Keystone Heights.

Some Clay residents, like Yolanda Norton, agreed many roads need attention.

"They have a lot of problems on the roads," Norton said. "Messing up your tires and stuff -- it really messes up the tires."

Requests can be made through the county's website online.
