Hi, I lived in Troutman, NC all my life, and I wondered for a long time, why aren't the NCDOT paying attention to traffic concern in the Charlotte area. I personally did some studies. I took a stop watch and calculated how long did it take for me to get across brawley school road in Mooresville........It took 15 to 20 minutes to get across the intersection, because of traffic build-up during rushhour. To me that is the craziest thing ever, and to make a long story short. Something seriously need to be done in all parts of the state of than just than the eastern part of the state. Is it a huge Issue or not

Politics is why.

The road trust fund has been raided for other things depleting the much needed money to repair the roads.

Politicians apparently policitians in certain areas of this state can pull more strings than areas that are actually experiencing a high growth. Drive towards the coast and you will see example of this.
Drive in areas that our US senators are from and you will see alot more road projects going on and the same for our US congress man and state legislators. Fayetteville for instance will finish it beltline before 485 belt line is finished and the Fayetteville beltline was started after 485. The new projected date for 485 is the year 2018.

This why it is very important to register to vote and know which candidate at all levels who will do something about our infrastructure. Also pay attention to those who are already elected and have done nothing.

Pay attention who you will elect for governor as they appoint leader of Department of Transportation
