While I understand that building the port has been on hold, I think that blocking the study is a bad idea.

it's a great location for a port, it's a shame that some folks are blocking it.

They would have to have a four lane 55mph road (at least), as opposed to River Road. You would think the Army, with MOT Sunny Point, could help influence it.

Get that to intersect Future I-140 with the Cape Fear Skyway, and now we are cooking with grease in Brunswick County.
