(Responses entered between Jan. 17 and Jan. 24)
Sample comments:
” … There are many bridges over the Yadkin in the state, and they are not toll. Why should the one in Rowan County be toll?”
ó From “jhill75”
“The bridge across the Yadkin should have been replaced 10 years ago!! … There is no foresight with the N.C. department of highways. A toll bridge would be just another bottleneck like others that already exist on I-85.”
