SHERMAN, Texas -- Residents in southeast Sherman are fed up with a delayed street project.

After a road collapsed four years ago, a local company took over some through roads.

Residents say they've been cut off.

The city said it plans to reconnect those affected by building a new road linking Park Avenue to Lake Street across the BNSF Railroad tracks.

"We just want our street to go through; it didn't matter here on Lake Street or there on Park Street," said resident Deann Davis. "It matters about having a convenient road... us not having to go thorough alleys about to get in wrecks."

The city said they have the funds to complete the project; they're just waiting on needed permits from BNSF.

The railroad told KTEN they are moving forward with the project and just trying to finalize an agreement with the city.
