Access Road In Fishtrap Area Requested

In an effort to free the landlocked residents of the Upper Pompey area, Judge-Executive Wayne T. Rutherford of Pike County has asked the Corps of Engineers to follow through on plans to construct a road in the Fishtrap Lake area. The access road, which first appeared on the planning board six years ago, would cut the travel time from Pompey, Jonican, Hurricane and other communities to Pikeville from one hour to around fifteen minutes. Jonah Thacker, a lifelong resident of the area said he has been waiting his entire life for construction of the road...he is now 56 years old. It was pointed out the obvious safety benefits that would accrue in terms of emergency evacuation of stricken residents.
