Some residents in eastern Lauderdale County made good on a promise Friday, standing in front of construction equipment as work on a new road began.

Residents of Kewanee Church Road were out trying to stop work on a road that members of the Board of Supervisors believe will make a curve safer, but residents believe that special treatment is being shown to the landowner who's property lies in the curve.

Friday those upset residents confronted Lauderdale County Road Manager Harris Wilder.

The protesters left after speaking with Lauderdale County Sheriff's Deputies, and work on the site continued, no arrests were made.
