Wildwood Lane, which is in the Dyllis area, is not a county road. However, residents who live on the road are pushing for the county to take it over.
The road not taken

The Roane County Commission’s decision to accept a portion of Bournemouth Drive into the county road system last month didn’t go unnoticed.

“We want our road took over by the county also,” said Tim Phillips, who lives on Wildwood Lane in the Dyllis area.

So far officials have said no to the request, but Phillips along with some of his neighbors plan to continue pursuing the issue with county officials. Phillips said it’s an issue of fairness now that the county has accepted Bournemouth.
