Sounds like the realtor was misinformed. I think the continued rapid growth of the area will bring more businesses rather than the road. Both the road widening and more businesses are related to the areas tremendous growth rate.

If the realtor stated that Hwy. 211 will have multiple bottlenecks where the road will yo-yo between 2 and 4 lanes between Midway Road and S'port, then the the realtor was incorrect.

Like another poster stated, the more roofs or homes with permanent residents will translate into more business in the area. Another factor to consider is that brick and mortar retailing is down due to people using the internet to purchase items. That trend will only increase. Fed Ex; UPS and USPS are very busy delivering items in the plantations.

The area is growing and will continue to grow.

Bottleneck, no bottleneck? .... Have you ever seen a major road construction project? Of course there will be bottlenecks. It's kind of like constipation. You push and grunt for a while, then it opens up with great relief.

Like most government projects, they start when they start, there is a lot of yelling and screaming, and some time later, they end. Usually just in time to start the process all over.

That is true... and the "obvious" is that they ( the government ) can announce anything they want, and usually do,but when it actually gets started OR finished is usually a completely different story and the same applies regarding the cost$ involved.
