RE NC DOT Div 13, TIP numbers U5781 and U5782

I’m writing as a local property owner to oppose the current DOT plan to widen N Merrimon. The proposed plan would increase traffic speeds dangerously, making neighborhood pedestrian and bicycle use more difficult and less likely.
I would like to see a design that required slower automotive speeds, along with a divided cycling roadway, plus sidewalks.
Additionally, I would like to see a plan that continues the greenway under the road. In its current form, the greenway is extremely dangerous at the Merrimon crossing (and it takes along time to get across).
