The state cannot afford to keep up the roads we have now they don't need to be building anymore. If ASU wants this road built let them pay for it instead of the tax payers. What is wrong with the road thats already in that area which is propular grove that goes from 105 to rivers street it even has a road that connects it to Bodenheimer Drive that ASU has gated off.

Rest assured, if high and mighty ASU wants it, they'll get it.

It's a shame that most of the road shoulders in Watauga Co. are a disaster waiting to happen. If some one runs onto the shoulder of most roads there would be a wreck. All the Obama money went for 1 mile of road in Boone to accomadate ASU and the new high school, which we have yet to pay for.
Most ajouning counties paved all their roads with the Obama dollars instead of 1 mile of roadway.
How many local workers got employment in that mile?
They also want a bike lane on 421 east. Maybe they could put a bike lane on 421 W to the TN Line. That would make our road a lot safer.
