To the editor: “STOP! in the name of love” of the environment. If anyone has seen the devastation that has been caused by the N.C. Department of Transportation on Highway 225, he or she would be against any more of these projects.
Yes, I know that they say they are safer, but at what cost? All of the trees that were sacrificed so that they could build this monstrous, unnecessary road. It is huge, probably much bigger than was thought when the project was approved.
And to think that this could have been avoided, at a fraction of the cost in dollars and the clearing of all the vegetation, by using two timed stop lights!
