In the past I’ve satirized this phenom. Now it’s my turn in the cage. For the past 5+ years NC DOT has been promoting different over-scale plans to “ease” the north-south travel through lovely Asheville. There has been a outpouring of criticism wrapped in well-reasoned narratives that must have had some traction because the project has not begun. Now. it looks like this ill-advised Montford-neighborhood-killer project may be on again. So I add my 1000 words to the thoughtful discussion.
