I’m not sure that this widening project of US Hwy 421 is prudent at this time.
I own a home along this stretch within 150 feet of the current three-lane expansion. While the traffic has increased since 1963, it is not untenable.
To my observation, only two new businesses have evolved in the last 55 years (gas station and Dollar General). Many historic homes and natural waterways would be impacted by this expansion.
I’m just not convinced that slight delays at 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. during week days warrants such a radical move. I recommend a re-evaluation of this project.
