Online Maps Show Private Road as Public

OXFORD, Miss. (AP) — A Lafayette County man says a high-tech glitch is causing problems involving a private road on his property.

A local newspaper reports that John Brasher lives near County Road 154. The problem is that several GPS systems identify Brasher’s private road as a public street. Brasher told county officials this past week that, as a result, he gets several uninvited guests traveling across his property at all hours of the day and night.

Brasher said he is filing an application with Google that should help fix the problem on Google maps, but he doesn’t know how long it might take to resolve the issue.

On Monday, he asked the Lafayette County Board of Supervisors for any assistance they may be able to provide in the meantime.
