Union Grove Roadway Remains Residents Responsibility

  Some folks who live near a broken east Texas roadway may have to fix it themselves, without county help. Silk Tree road is about 2 miles off of highway 271 in Union Grove, in Upshur County. Residents say the road has steadily deteriorated for years. So much so, that they had asked upshur county commissioners to intervene.

  Today, commissioners told us because the road is private, the county has no obligation or responsibility to maintain or repair it. Commissioners say if residents fix and maintain the road for two years, the county will take over.
