This isn't going to be built for us, it's for the traveling public and isn't going to help this community one bit.
I've seen this happen before, in a small city in Eastern Kentucky where US 23 meandered its way through the middle of town. A bypass was built, traffic was re-routed to the edge of town and local business suffered; many closed for lack of customers just as has happened here in Cusseta. Though the local business-people opposed it, in the next 30 years,shopping centers were built on the bypass, traffic lights became necessary, and in the last 15 years, a bypass bypassing the bypass has been constructed, once again pulling the traffic away from the business district. The original business center is a shell of what it once was, the 'new' business center must now depend on local traffic only, and the traveler is deprived of ready access to fast food, motels, and vehicle service, among other things.
Almost exactly like what has happened here, and what is going to happen here if they extend I-185. Someone, in a post in one of these forums, has lamented the loss of so many downtown businesses in Cusseta in the past. Now you know why.
