This affects where we live (Meadowlands subdivision) as the selected corridor (alternate 6) will run right through the "back" entrance to Meadowlands. I was hoping they would just widen existing 109.

It seems it would be less state funds to just widen 109. It not like Wallburg is that big that a by pass is needed. Plus it takes away the traffic the businesses could use in Wallburg.

If you go to the meeting let me know how it goes. It not fair to the home owners with nice peaceful living have to put up with traffic noise and drop in property value.

I think it looks good. You have to look at the lay of the land. Effects on current homes that are on 109 now. Granted it looks like it will effect a lot of people. But have driven the old section before the re-route now. They took a lot of land with few homes affected. If they would have just widened the road along the old route. The cost for the land and homes buy out would have made the project way to high. As far as Wallburg. The effect on business will be less than you think. If I recall correctly. You have a school that would be affected if widened. There is just no room for a four lane with a grass median. The number of businesses I think is not supported by that much of the though traffic. It is more local.

We was just driving on 109 om Saturday from Thomasville Everybody Day Festival to Winston.
Once you get on 4 lane 109 then 2 lane there is not a single traffic light except I think at Ledford Middle then about 10 miles past Wallburg near the Sheets gas station.
I also do not see why they could not just widen?

Again you must look at the number of homes affected along 109. They have really cut though a bunch of land. Less homes impacted. If you really look at the plan maps and note the churches, business and homes along 109 now. You will see fewer are affected.
