    Ok so why couldn’t this be done after school is out? Does dot not realize how much this will inconvience this is going to be? Please reconsider! We only have 19 days of school left here in new Hanover county

    People get it over it. Repair work needs to be done. No it will not always be done at the convenience of the citizens of the community but get over it. It’s only a week. It will be open after rush hour.
    So the school bus’s will have to re-route for one week big deal.

    Be thankful the repair/maintenance work is being done. If not and something serious did happen then that stretch of road would be shut down for longer period of time.

    So just get over it accept it and take a different route for all of 5 day during the day. not that big of a deal.

    This is a complete joke. I have never seen so much incompetence,as all the road repairs that start in the spring and summer.If this is not a safety issue just start it on June the 8th when school lets out. Do they have any idea how many people use that road to get to Murray,Ashley and Anderson.

    Call BR549 and ask for Rosco Cleepenhiemer the III :-)
