Paving of Barry Township Government Road Discussed
The future of a contested government road in Pine County was updated this week.
The Pine County Board and County Engineer Mark Lebrun spoke on whether or not to move forward with paving a road over the government road in Barry Township, between Hinckley and Sandstone.
Lebrun said that re-doing that road would cost a substantial amount, in the $6-$7 million range.
He also stressed that the workforce is stretched thin.
The county took traffic counts that are up to state standards, and found that roughly 180 cars use the road per day
