The bad road in Bertie County

Posted: Updated:
WINDSOR, N.C. - Church Lane is a privately owned road that leads to about 20 homes outside of Windsor. Residents say the road's condition has continued to worsen over the past 20 years. They say the owner won't pay to repair the road. County officials say that because the road is privately owned, their hands are tied.

"County dollars cannot be used to improve private property and these dirt roads in these subdivisions, unregulated subdivisions that predate the subdivisions ordinance, fall under that category," said Traci White, the Bertie County Planning Director.

Residents say the road has gotten so bad, emergency vehicles have a difficult time getting back to homes when they are needed.

Privately owned roads that are not maintained have become a statewide problem.
