I am writing to express my concern about the proposed the DOT project to widen Merrimon Ave. between Coleman and Edgewood Road. I have lived in Asheville 28 years and I have spent lots of time traveling that section of Merriman Ave by car and bicycle. I encourage the NCDOT to work with the City of Asheville and concerned local citizens to design a solution that is oriented toward a “complete street” design. The design should embrace pedestrian and cycling access and safety issues as well as neighborhood issues.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
