Tractor plow damages Cotton County road

Tractor plow damages Cotton County road

COTTON CO., Okla. (TNN) - Crews are working to repair road damage on Park Road in Cotton County that was caused by a tractor plow.

Commissioner Mike Woods says the damage, including deep tracks that were dug into one side of the road, spans nearly a quarter mile.

“A farmer came out of one field, going to the next, and he had hydraulic problems. It went further than we would like, and deeper, but this is a farming community, and that’s going to happen from time to time," says Woods.

Crews were out earlier Wednesday working on repairs, but stopped due to heat.

Woods says they have an idea on who was driving the tractor, but no legal action has been taken.

This is one of the county’s most traveled roads, and Woods says with events coming up, they will have to work very quickly to make it safer for travel.
