Military Cutoff

The problem doesn't start and end with DOT. The county/city should have never granted a permit for the projects on Military Cutoff until the road was upgraded for the expected traffic count. The developers should have been required to foot the bill and complete the road improvements BEFORE any retail/residential projects could get permits. This has worked in Wake County/Cary. If the projected profits from such projects are great enough, then the developers will be more than willing to foot the bill if it means their projects can move forward. Building the road AFTER the development has begun causes great hardship on existing businesses and commuters. That road was already a nightmare. Oh, and what weather related set backs are they referring to - Snow? It certainly wasn't rain related. Contractual? This should be their problem to fix, not a waiting game for citizens using Military Cutoff. What monitary penalties are they paying. Taxpayers should not be held hostage by DOT, but it is happening everywhere they have a project. DOT has some big problems and it has to start at the top. They need to clean house from the top down, but no one in Raleigh is willing to do this. Run your business like this and see how long you will survive.
