Lampasas County commissioners agreed Monday to fix County Road 3210, a road that’s been plagued with drainage problems for years. The issue was brought to the panel April 28 and tabled so that officials could visit the site to scout out solutions.

“It’s kind of a cooperative effort to build up the road and rebuild some of the ditches on either side of it,” County Judge Wayne Boultinghouse said.

Boultinghouse said Robert Vincent Jr., Precinct 1 commissioner, will work with the area rock quarry and help raise the unpaved road by laying more crushed rock on it.

Officials will help clear one of the ditches in the area while also building a ditch on the other side of the road. The road is not level, Boultinghouse said. He said the new driveways built along the road contributed to some of the drainage problems.

James Evans, a property owner along the road who brought the issues before the commissioners, will help clear out a ditch along his property and beneath his driveway to help stem the flooding, Boultinghouse said.

It is unclear when road repairs will start or how much it will cost at the moment, because Vincent’s office is short-staffed, Boultinghouse said. He does not believe the repairs will be costly.

Commissioners approved a resolution allowing Vincent to hire another temporary employee for his office for the next three to four months.
