Fayetteville, Wedington Drive Widening
We were not at all happy at the news that Mayor Coody and people within the City Administration had somehow changed the proposed 5 lanes on Wedington Dr. to 4 lanes with a couple of turn lanes. Most of the concern for the 4 lanes was not enough turn lanes were included nor were there plans to provide space for more turns as development continues on Wedington. A prime example is the proposed Woodstock Community, a mixture of residential and commercial lots. There is no plan to provide a turn lane for access in the middle of the community. Can you image the traffic that will be stacked up in the middle of the road trying to turn into the complex? I'm fairly certain more big commercial development are going to be built on Wedington. How are people going to safely access these if there is no turn lane? The State has already started work on Wedington. I just hope it's not too late to get the State to make some changes. I just hope that the State is willing to make changes.
