Perhaps a better title for this editorial would be, “Does the Augusta Bottom Road Have a Future?” We don’t know of a single road in this immediate area that has been the subject of as much discussion as has been the Augusta Bottom Road.

Now that Augusta has closed a section referred to as the Augusta Parkway, the entire hazardous road is shut down. Augusta took action because it has lost liability insurance coverage, and couldn’t afford another potential lawsuit. Augusta reached a settlement in a lawsuit filed by family members of a Washington girl who lost her life in an accident on the road. Remaining defendants in that lawsuit are the city of Washington, St. Charles and Warren counties. All those entities at one time or another have done some maintenance on the road.
