Same old, same old...we should build more roads and facilitate even more traffic, right? At some point we will reach critical mass on how many new roads we can actually build around here. Mass transit, anyone?
Developers also built neighborhoods around US64. Churches were founded along this road. Municipalities and counties built parks and schools around US64, too. It's our main street as well as your thoroughfare.
This community should not be sacrificed in the name of enhanced through traffic, especially when another viable solution could be created in the same time frame and with the intended funding as the superstreet--US 64 BYPASS. Just use existing US1 South to Sanford, to pending NC540 north, to US64, and you've got your bypass. As far as existing US64 goes, just add a lane or synchronize traffic signals differently...just let existing US64 stand as US64 Business, and let this Apex/Cary community be. If you choose to drive Business 64 because it's shorter, well...you know the drill...it was your choice.
This blog and this post seems to be quite comfortable "inconveniencing" the Apex/Cary community along US64 for a short-sighted fix to your own inconvenience. What about trying to get toll road status removed from NC540? If there's no funding for the superstreet now, we've got time to work toward that option, right? And even if toll road status is not removed, why should our community pay for your convenience?
