County Highway Plans to Install Jump Ramps for Washed Out Roadways

September 30th, 2019

LaSALLE COUNTY, IL – After rain over the weekend has washed out several area roads, the local Highway Department announced they will be installing ramps for cars to leap over the road divots.

“Our budget is tight right now, and we just do not have the funds to fix these washedout roads.” Chuck Dudge told The Cob, Monday morning.

“Ramps will be installed along these washed out roads so cars can pass. Perfectly safe, it’s been done many times before, vehicles just have to be traveling 50mph to make it.”

“We revised the saying from turn around don’t drown, to rev it and jump that creek.” He concluded.
