“This intersection is where the heavy equipment can in to do the oil wells and they tore up this intersection,” James Creamer, said.
According to Creamer that was several years ago and since then he says Creekside Drive and other roads in the area are extremely damaged. 
“The county man told me Fair Oil  was gonna put up money if the road was damaged they would repair it,” Creamer, said.
The roads are so bad to residents someone even put a sign up warning drivers. He feels the repairs are minimal and offer no long term solution.
“This was last week and if you drive along you’ll see were they patch and it’s worse than what it was, Creamer, said.
We’re told the Smith County Road and Bridge Department are aware of the problems concerning Creekside Drive and the others near it.
“We have a lot of roads that need some major attention too, some need to be totally rebuilt,” County Engineer Frank Davis, said.
Creamer suffers from spinal problems and says driving on the bumpy streets affect him. He’s also worried about accidents when people drive to avoid broken parts in the road.
“I wish we could take care of every road, every road problem we have right now and of course like I said money is a problem,” David, said.
“They forgot about us it ain’t right, people who live out in the county use a county road to get to a state highway so they can go to work,” Creamer, said.
