A Marion County road has been in desperate need of repairing since March.

Several business owners were concerned about the well being of their businesses due to the large number of pot holes on Hoult Road.

The Marion County Development Authority has been working with the state to get something done about the road.

It has announced it received a $250,000 road work grant from the Department of Highways.

Business owners said it's been a long time coming.

"It's huge! We want the work to start tomorrow. its severe, the road condition. We have businesses that are operating, eight or nine, that use this road on a daily basis. We cant wait for the work to start," said Erin Lilly, of Phillips Services.

The grant money will go toward the drainage problems, repaving, asphalt, and more.

Work is expected to begin next spring.
