‘In my opinion it’s dangerous,’ Cleveland County residents demand officials fix potholes

Residents in Cleveland County want to know why officials have not fixed the roads.

Roy from Cleveland County says Harrah Road, between 89th Street and 104 Street, is in awful shape.

“In my opinion it’s dangerous.  It’s huge and it’s just getting worse,” said Roy.

Cleveland County Commissioner Rod Cleveland says they are aware of the conditions of the roads.

“Harrah Road is on the priority list that we have given the City of Oklahoma City,” said Cleveland.

Parts of Harrah Road are owned by both Oklahoma City and Cleveland County.

The City of Oklahoma City and Cleveland County officials agree that fixing the roads is a money issue.

“We’ve applied for a FEMA grant, we might get some money.  Oklahoma City might get some money,” said Cleveland. “It’s not a guarantee but we have applied for it.”

Roy worries it could be too late.

“These people are doing 55 miles an hour.  But they’ll wait until somebody gets killed….Take the money and resurface the road.”
