Looks like we are getting a toll road right or wrong. The latest studies report that traffic will increase, not decrease. Oh, and no one can even estimate the cost of the toll. That's a red flag. Along with forgetting how to build cars and appliances and outboard motors, I guess we also forgot how… read more about It seems to me that it would be much cheaper...

When NCDOT opens the second lane on Exit 28, they should make it a toll lane and charge people $9 to get to the other side of town. That way we'll always have at least one lane that never gets congested and they'll be “giving drivers a choice.” Makes about as much sense as I-77 tolls. read more about Makes about as much sense as I-77 tolls...

Why doesn’t the NCDOT or the CPD put up barriers to prevent people from cutting into the line going over the bridge? These people block cars who are trying to turn onto the highway and back up the adjacent turning lane. Let’s be sensible,put up some kind of divider! read more about Put up some kind of divider!
I love the wishing well on Catawba!I have walked or ridden by it since 1999 and am sad to see it aging and falling into disrepair. Instead of tearing it down why don't we ask the property owner if they would like some help in restoring it to its previous charm? read more about I love the wishing well on Catawba!
Why would someone blame our governor and/or state legislature for the I-77 toll road debacle, when it was our local Democrat leaders that pushed this disaster-in-waiting down our throats? Talk about an uninformed voter! Geeeesh! read more about Talk about an uninformed voter!
My peeve is that the instructions for the "Peeved" column specifically say, “up to 50 words,” and then you publish pieces that are significantly longer than that limit. Why set a limit if you use ones with as many as 200 or more words? (44 words). read more about Why set a limit?

So, the Town of Davidson doesn’t want a replica of Exit 30 for the downtown area. Yet those same people approved a development to cram 16 homes on a small tract of land on a quiet but personable street. In their words, “If you want privacy, this development is not for you.” No consideration for the… read more about Thanks Davidson!
No one at the NCDOT has a brain. They can't widen U.S. 21 or N.C. 115? So they are selling our roads and America to a Spanish company. No American company would want this business? Can you spell KICKBACK TO THE POLITICOS!! Widen the roads people are flocking to the Carolinas. read more about Can you spell KICKBACK TO THE POLITICOS!!
I-77 is already a toll road. The HOV lane requires 2x people (instead of cash) and is glaringly under-utilized, compared to the other lanes. Do away with the HOV requirement, restrict transfer trucks to the right lane(s), and the traffic problem should be alleviated, until public funding becomes… read more about I-77 is already a toll road
You can travel the complete distance of the New York State Thruway, which is hundreds of miles, for less than $20 round trip but it will cost you more than that to go 26 miles on the I-77 toll lanes. By 2035, it will cost you $42. Something sure smells rotten in the state of North Carolina. read more about Something sure smells rotten in the state of North Carolina

Every week, we, the lowly taxpaying peons of Huntersville, march our containers of trash to the curb, only to have them skipped over by the collection trucks.
