“Hwy 105 between Hwy 321 and Hwy 105 Extension in Boone is unsafe given the current traffic volume. These safety problems will only get worse with countless deaths, injuries, and untold cost. No small change in the highway can possibly fix these serious safety problems.
“Initial NCDOT plans for Hwy 105 redesign were seriously flawed. Also, the economic impact of businesses along the corridor is enormous and must be considered.
“During the last eight months, community leaders and NCDOT resolved many problems with the original plans. I hope conversations about this project will continue. I look forward to working with NCDOT and community leaders to reach a solution that is beneficial for the entire community.
“Please contact my office with your concerns and ideas.
