Not only that...

...what I want to know is how in this feeble world can it cost a half-million dollars to simply re-stripe the lanes and re-program 2 traffic signals? Ohhhh yeah, that's right, the unabated NCDOT is doing this work. It will consume 78 men for 6 weeks, 123 shovels, 26 yellow 4 door trucks, a skip loader, a backhoe, two bulldozers and 12 large dumptrucks. Not to mention a crapload of orange cones and vests.
Sorry, this change was implemented without investing in the FIRST traffic study to see if it was even possible to work! $500,000.00 to re-stripe and re-program? I WANT THAT contract!!!

The really sad part. When all of this started last spring, the striping was temporary and could've easily been changed. With all of the calls and emails CB town management received from tourists, residents and businesses they proceeded with the defective, unprepared plan anyway. The response to my written concern was, "...just have patience and allow time to get used to it."
