Fayetteville, Rupple Road Widening
Wow Oh Wow! The Fayetteville Street committee have finally done it. They have voted to widen a street before it became a traffic disaster. The Committee voted to widen Rupple Road from Wedington Drive to Persimmon Street as well as improving the intersection of Wedington and Rupple. Lioneld Jordan, chair, said that in 2001 the proposed widening would cost $750,000, now it will cost $2.3 million. It sure would be nice if the City of Fayetteville could build roads before they become traffic nightmares and the cost of building them skyrocket.
