Dungan stated he and County Road Manager Charlie Schielder have been working with the Anchor Lake POA (Property Owner’s Association) in regards to an emergency access route. Dungan prepared a map showing both an alternate route and an emergency route should rains impact the spillway at the lake. He said there are over seventy homes between the bridge to be replaced and the spillway.
