Hardingrove Road closed to thru traffic

Sliding down ... Given this area’s unstable soil, roads along ridgebacks are prone to sluffing. Hardingrove Road, which serves as a mail and school route, is sliding downward. Highway department crews have tried repairs at the first sluff.

Another sluff-off along Hardingrove Road, just to the east of Billie Parsons' has caused enough concerns for Kenny Neville, Haakon County highway superintendent, and the Haakon County Commission that they have declared the road closed and any people who travel it do so at their own risk.

The board signed a work order to start proceedings for the repairwork under the Federal Aid Secondary road designation. Neville said the process from the signing to actual work is about four years. To temporarily fix the area the county could hire the work done for upwards of $80,000.
