just a horrible intersection- it needs an overpass
David September 30, 2012 at 10:40 AM
john disagree Overpasses should have been placed at the 111 intersection AND Terry Road Intersection. When the construction was being done. HOWEVER after how many MILLION dollars was spent to do WHAT??? your guess is as good as mine. 5 years from now will spend another 25 million to take it all up and then consider overpasses. This is why we are broke around the world . Rush Rush Rush on a job and was it the right job NOPE take it down and do it over again. Have you seen the Sidewalk from Paces to 111? crazy how many people walk that it is wide enough now to have one lane of traffic. it will be a matter of time before someone drives on it you shall see. The State knows it they put signes up "Not for automobile use" Duh so why so wide might as well let Pace's park there cars on it I am sure they will !!!!!
