NCDOT works to shore up Rutledge Drive

Rutledge Drive is still a road that requires a slow speed, but thanks to NCDOT Henderson County Maintenance, the shoulders have been reinforced with added fill to help mitigate any drop-off. There has been so much extra traffic using the road as a detour around the Erkwood/Shepherd roundabout that the roadbed edges have taken a beating, and every little bit of extra maintenance helps.

  1. I live just off Rutledge Road and anyone with a wit of common sense knows 35mph is as fast as you want to go safely. But since the closure of Greenville Highway the traffic on Rutledge not only has increased 10 times, but the cars and large trucks think it’s an extension to Rt-26 by the speed many of them do.
