    It sure would be great if NCDOT started following their own complete streets policy and installed the sidewalks and bikelanes that are needed there instead of having to go back later, close the streets, and spend even more funding.

      biker: whatyou are suggesting you make to much comon sense to do an that way if they did as you are suggeting they in turn would be able to let more additional contracts an with each one they have to provide a gift to the contractor thatis awarded the contract an it is ( the gift is what is commonly refered to as mobilization) an moblization is a line oced item in every state construction contract that is awarded state wide an what it does is it allows the state to gift to the copntractor the amount of monley that it is supposely to cost an fro the contractor picking up his equipment an moveing on to the project to begin work that is whhat mobilizations is it is a pure gift . question do you knowingly pay any contractor to come to your house an begin work on any home improvement project that you are hiring them to do for you. of coarse not knowingly so but the ncdot does just that for it's contractors with the use of the taxpayers moneys which is nothing short of a total gift. not too even mention the other line code item in a contract where that contractors are being allowed to get paid for the non conformance to the ncdot speceficiations such as payment for unclassified borrow material that has been approved for use an is then allowed to be turn around an wasted for no real reasons or the use of sorroy quality liquid aspahalt in the ncdot designed aspahllt mixtrue that are causing eariler deteritions of asphalt pavement mixtrues all across this state result in the eariler need for resurfacing of roadways than would normaly be required thank you

        I hope you know what you are talking about because nobody else can figure it out! You may have some good and valid points but your writing "style" is such that nobody can understand you. Before you start downing somebody, you need to get somebody to proofread your statements to make sure Joe Public can understand you! And by the way, mobilization is a line item in a lot of non-government contracts!

        My head literally exploded reading that, and I can't tell you a thing the person was trying to say.

      I called DOT Fri when detour sign first put up. According to DOT, it is actually work on the bridge over US 264 in the northbound lane only. Detour is only if you are trying to get over US 264, like to the school, or points north. Anything between NC 11 and the bridge is open. I doubt seriously if the extra mileage required by using 264 and getting off on 33 North is 6 miles - IMHO, that is bad journalism. Not enough or incorrect information is wrong, wrong, wrong.
