Oh, you are so wrong. They didn't even purchase or "engineer" the turning lane coming from Hiram Sudie in the beginning. They came back after the road was built and tried to take it calling it an "easement". I demanded payment for the extra 1/4 acre of mine they were taking and they eventually had to pay. They tore out my field lines in the process of building the turning lane because the were to stupid to realize I had a septic tank w/300ft of line. And trust me, they have not purchased enough land to build another lane. Another lane will take out my entire back yard and bury my entire tank and field lines, making the home null and void, and no, they haven't paid me for that. Your comments are totally in error.
I haven't commented about this section of road as the 4-laning is NOT going that far to begin with.
So MY comments were well within the scope of the topic and the information I have came directly from the County's DOT director. And he wouldn't discuss those types of issues with me.
So, did you get a free sewer hook up because of them tearing up your septic field? You should have!
I whole heartedly agress with the bolded statements above. But note the underlined. It will do nothing solve the majority of the overcrowding if they only go to the railroad bridge. Oh yeah, and anyone who says it doesn't need to be widened, doesn't drive it every day. But PLEASE raise the speed limit to 55. 45 on that road (as well as on Hiram Sudie) is rediculous. It is strictly a money making (traffic fines) thing to have the limit so low on those roads.
You will need to talk to the State DOT about that. The County cannot set speed limits on ANY road.
The thing is it WAS 50 in the middle (from about where Bill Carruth to just before Davis Mill) and 45 on both ends as you approached 92 on one end and 61 on the other. Then nothing was said the 50 signs were just removed. At one point there remained a sign just before Settlers Mill subdivision that said Reduce Speed Ahead with the 45 sign closer to Davis Mill. That sign also diappeared. So does the signs disappearing mean the speed limit changed? Or is the part in the middle still rated at 50 just no one knows it?
Aren't there several LEO's on here? Could any of you answer that/those questions? I like to be lawabiding but feel we got jipped just because the signs have not been replaced.
Speed limits and the placement of the signs is controlled ONLY by the State DOT. The County has no control on this.
