JAMESTOWN, NC — The North Carolina Department of Transportation spent more than $25 million on 200 parcels of land in order to transform a two-lane road into a major four-lane highway complete with a median, myfox8.com reported.
The Nov. 8 story stated that the major plans would affect local businesses along the road, including The Black Dog Car Wash owned by Keith Bardorf.
The highway will come within feet of the wash, and the location will lose all front parking spots. Bardorf is expecting a negative effect on his company. “We planned and are budgeting for two years of ‘not fun’,” he said in the story.
The department stated that the extension of the small road into a major highway will relieve heavy congestion and improve safety. The project is expected to be completed by 2015.
