CHARLESTON -- Mississippi County Commissioners are thankful for a better-than-expected road surface but concerned it may have created a safety hazard

State Highway 105, which runs between Charleston and East Prairie, appears to have received a 2-inch asphalt overlay, Commissioners noted during their regular meeting Thursday.

While county officials are pleased with the overlay, they noted the shoulder is now about two inches lower than the road and could cause motorists who accidently drive on the shoulder to overcorrect while trying to return their vehicle to the roadway.
