Mary: I support instead, a three lane, two lanes plus turning lane, design

Kim,

I drive on Merrimon Avenue almost every day.  It is my neighborhood.  I strongly oppose a five lane solution to this corridor!   I believe this is a very backwards thinking design.
I support instead, a three lane, two lanes plus turning lane, design.  Also, an addition of wider sidewalks and a decent bike lane.  So many people live just one block east and west of Merrimon, and we would all walk and bike more were it safer to do so.
In addition, I support a slower speed limit.
I plead with NC DOT to listen to our community on this issue.  Please!

Thank you.
