Heavy rains have washed away the road on Amity Lane, leaving dozens of families stranded on the other side.
As heavy equipment from the state forestry division helps to create a temporary road, residents are furious. They're only able to cross the neighborhood road with help of a makeshift bridge.
"Twenty minutes later the road was gone," Paul Henderson said. Henderson added he had to sleep in his car since he couldn't get across last night. As some bring in drinks and supplies, other residents have bigger problems.
"We've got one lady back there who can hardly breathe. And the ambulance comes down there at least once or twice a week," Henderson said.
Lincoln County Emergency used an automated call to notify residents of the road. Channel 9 asked Interim County Manager Martha Lide if residents can expect a permanent solution to the road.
"It's an emergency situation and the county has responsibility to provide emergency services. However, the access to those services is a matter of the neighborhood in this instance," Lide said.
Lincoln County officials said it could be a few more days before the temporary road is complete. Since the road is privately owned, officials said it'll be up to the property owner to get it fixed.
"The maintenance of this road is a neighborhood responsibility and they're going to have to be a part of the solution," Lide said.
Lincoln County has worked out an agreement with property owners who border this area, while no personal cars can go through, emergency vehicles can get in and out through the back of the property.
