Mobile Home Abandoned in Roadway Near Joaquin

July 29, 2021 - Roy Cheatwood, Constable Precinct 3, reports the discovery of a mobile home left in the middle of FM 2787 at County Road 3569.

According to Constable Cheatwood, the mobile home crossed the Logansport Bridge from Louisiana on July 27, 2021, and was en-route to CR 3569. As the mobile home was getting closer to its destination, it became stuck at the intersection of FM 2787 and CR 3569 and was abandoned at that location with debris remaining in the roadway. 

Constable Cheatwood and the Sheriff's Department were contacted about the situation and Constable Cheatwood went to the scene where a tow truck was used to move the mobile home further out of the roadway. 

Constable Cheatwood contacted Precinct 3 Road and Bridge and Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) and informed them of the circumstances. Road and Bridge workers assisted TxDOT in tearing down the mobile home and piling it beside the roadway. It was reported to Constable Cheatwood the estimated cost of the cleanup would be around $5,000.

For responding to the scene, Constable Cheatwood expressed appreciation to David Cheatwood and Steven Holloway with Precinct 3 Road and Bridge and TxDOT in helping get the roadway cleared.
