The issue with the water park right now is members of the Woodman being turned away. The water park is open to the public, just have to pay to enter but it is so popular at the moment that members are being turned away because of capacity issues.

Haven't heard of either. Buying Wendy's makes sense, Phoenix makes less sense. Phoenix is on the second floor of that building. There is another club on the 1st floor on 5th St side, Hard Times. It would make more sense to for another redeveloper to buy it.

I've heard from two separate sources that the opening date for the new Walmart is July 17th.

This article says US264 (at least in Wake County) is a good candidate to increase the speed limit to 75. That would shrink the "time distance" even more for Greenville.

Also, if the NCDOT made more of 264 "75mph +" ready outside of Wake County, one could see interstate designation being in the same conversation.

It would need to be +75 nearly the entire route if you ask me; why limit it to Waje County when in fact it's the most urbanized county along the route. Zebulon to Farmville should be +75; it's not like people, including myself at times, actually drive the speed limit anyhow. By the way, I haven't driven in NC in a while now, is the max speed 65 or 70? Driving around MD and DC the highest we ever really see is 55 so it's hard to remember NC's at times.

Back in the day, a friend of mine, in Washington DC was going to retire in 1995. About all he could say was "95 on 95 in 95"

That's what I'm talkin' about!

Max speed is 70 mph right now. I don't really see the need of raising the speed limit. Most people already drive over 70 mph between raleigh and greenville. 70 mph is a fine speed. The energy and money associated with getting it changed seems like it could be better spent somewhere else.

264 east of Wilson would probably need to get upgraded more (i.e. expanded emergency lanes). That would help our interstate designation cause though.

Heard today that today (June 19) is HuHot Mongolian Restaurant's last day of business. Their business hasn't been that great since they first opened. I liked their food but I think the Mongolian Empire restaurant is a lot better!
