A divider, or median, whatever you want to call it has been needed on 601 from 52 to walmart for years now. Every day you can go up or down 601 through there and see someone stupidly driving in the center turn lane. It is really a wonder why there isnt more accidents. This is a safety matter. Also, while they are adding the divider or median, why not widen the road as well as add a off/on/merge lane on the right side such as 29 has in greensboro.

It should make the entire area safer. The majority of the businesses in this area would seem to have enough land to allow for the expansion without causing any damage.

I wouls also like to see a rework of 52/601 intersection to make it safer and more efficiant. It is a nightmare as it is.

Please city commissioners, P-L-E-A-S-E let the state do this so we can have a safer city to live and commute in.
