Someone needs to adequately explain why a billion dollars needs to be spent constructing what is basically just another entrance to the Port. Practically speaking, it goes nowhere else. It's ludicrous to dump the eastern outlet onto two already crowded surface streets.
If our county commissioners, over the last twenty to thirty years, had shown some guts instead of greed, there would be a corridor for a southern loop. Too late for that now. To do a southern loop, it would cost another billion to relocate all the homes and businesses that were ignorantly allowed to build.
And everybody keeps forgetting that the I-140 northern loop will provide another large way to traverse the Cape Fear River, which, in addition to the construction of the new Port facility in Brunswick County, will help alleviate traffic on the east side of the river.
