Gene Cox Memorial Drive Could Close

A Dresden road may no longer be maintained by Muskingum County.

Commissioner Jerry Lavy said Gene Cox Memorial Drive could be closed soon.  He said the road is probably not worth repairing.

"The river has eroded parts of it, so it’s eating into the roadway there, and the road is not used for anything other than a couple of land owners that are up there," said Lavy.

Lavy said he has spoken with those land owners, and they are not opposed to the county’s plan.
