From today’s Progress –
Remember that debate over whether or not the Meadowcreek Parkway needs an interchange to work? … An at-grade intersection was a much cheaper design that would have allowed construction on the parkway, under discussion for 38 years, to begin sooner.
Read that again – 38 years this road has been talked about, studied, polled on … and on … and on. We could probably have planned and implemented some form of mass transit by now … We finally have the money (pork be damned).
To gain some history on the Meadowcreek Parkway, cvillenews is a great place to begin. Quite simply, our region needs more, more efficient infrastructure to cope and deal with the growth. This, along with the recent water progress, is a good place to start. Anything to improve denizens’ quality of life will improve real estate values, both financially and intangibly.
