Everybody involved (Maymead, engineers etc.) deserves praise for keeping U.S. 321 open the whole time while making it a four-lane. Amazing! However, as one who still regularly commutes on 321, I have a few concerns.

I can’t believe that anyone who’s in charge of reflectors has ever driven the road on a foggy night (not unusual) like on June 26. Even the finished parts don’t have nearly enough reflectors.

Also, I had hoped that there would be at least three more runaway truck ramps. Just one near the bottom of the mountain is not enough.

If there were more, perhaps the drivers could ditch their trucks sooner and avoid certain death, like what happened recently to those two poor Florida men.

I ask our legislators to look into this. Let’s not wait until a runaway truck takes out a van full of kids or a school bus.
