Limestone County commissioners may keep open the end of LCR 747, which nearby landowners had requested the county close, after the relatives of people interred in a family cemetery there objected.
The commissioners court dealt with that and other issues involving roads and the Road and Bridge Department at their May 10 meeting, including approving a sale of Road and Bridge’s surplus vehicles, delivering oil-and-sand mixture to the city of Kosse; and other minor matters.
Regarding LCR 747, a dead-end road off FM 937, southeast of Groesbeck, the land was recently purchased by new owners who want to keep their cattle in and outsiders out, except for those visiting a very small, 10-grave cemetery of the Roberts family, located on the portion of road that would be closed.
The court was prepared to allow the new owners to add a locked gate while ensuring Roberts would have a copy of the key.
