Just a few things to keep in mind as you read about this project. Tristan Patterson is running against the incumbent and businessman Dewey Hill. Mr. Hill owns most of the land and businesses where this road project is being done. I don’t see any road work being done in the rest of the County and our roads are falling apart. This road project is benefiting Dewey Hill more than anyone else. Should it not be investigated?
Cox said the entire project is scheduled to be completed in late November or early December. Numerous delays involving weather, personnel, groundwater and other problems kept the project behind schedule for weeks.
“Our goal now is to have the connector between 701 business and the bypass open by late September,” he said. “If we can avoid any weather delays or the problems that have plagued this section, it might be met.”
The state is reviewing driveway permits along the new section of road, Cox said. Local officials hope the new intersection will not only improve traffic flow, but open up some portions of the area for new retail development.SOURCE
