Construction set for Village Road

Business owners along a main road in Leland are worried their businesses may be disrupted by road construction. Friday Governor Bev Perdue announced 29 million dollars in Federal recovery funding for road projects across the state. One mile of Village Road in Brunswick County will be graded and paved beginning as early as August 31st, with the completion date set for June of 2011. Perdue says that these projects will stimulate economic growth by creating and maintaining jobs. Business owners along Village Road are not so sure. Dr. Gil Cromshaw owns a practice on Village Road. He says, "I'm deeply concerned that when it does start its going to take a very very long time and its going to be very disrupted to the businesses here on Village Road." Dr. Cromshaw's chiropractic firm has been located on Village Road for 15 years. And he says he has seen a definite increase in traffic during that time. Cromshaw says he just hopes the project stays on schedule.
