Road Near Taft in Terrible Condition for More than Three Years

Posted: Updated:
TAFT (Kiii News) -

A road near Taft has been causing a not-so-pleasant drive for nearby residents, one woman even saying it's more like a rollercoaster ride.

3News got a first-hand look at the street Thursday in San Patricio County. It's West Verbena Street, and Stephanie Balboa, a woman who lives at the end of the street, said she's been living there for three years and the road has been in horrible condition all that time.

Balboa said driving on the rocky, bouncy, pot hole filled road wakes up her two young children, and has causes car problems.

3News reached out to County Commissioner Nina Trevino, the person responsible for the road, but has not heard back from her.
