Ozark County commissioners expressed relief at their Monday morning meeting that FEMA has approved funding for repairs to county roads and bridges damaged by flood and high water. One of the crossings to be repaired is Haskins Ford over the Little North Fork of the White River as it flows into Bull Shoals Lake on County Road 863 near Isabella. A hole opened up in the submerged slab earlier this spring, and concrete blocks were placed in the damaged area to keep vehicles from driving into the hidden hole after vandals stole metal fenceposts originally marking the hazardous spot. The crossing was underwater most of this spring due to high lake levels. The repairs, which will return the area to "pre-flood" condition, will include concrete work, asphalt and new culverts.
