Merrimon Widening Comment

Jon: Design a solution that is oriented toward a “complete street” design

Mr. Hood-

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.
