Honk if you love that daily drive to work on U.S. 64 through Apex and western Wake County.
And if you're interested in NCDOT ideas for making changes to this road, you should come to a meeting Thursday evening at Green Hope High School in Cary.
(See this week's Road Worrier column with reader comments. Note: the column gave the wrong web address for NCDOT info about the project. Sorry! The correct address is www.ncdot.gov/~us64study/.)
State and local transportation planners will start the session Thursday evening with a presentation at 6:30 p.m. on their proposal to convert traffic signal intersections to "Superstreets," and to ban side-street drivers from driving across or turning left onto U.S. 64.
A group of local residents calling themselves Save 64 is petitioning to stop the DOT plan. Their efforts earlier this year prompted DOT to schedule Thursday's meeting.
It'll be interesting to find out Thursday whether U.S. 64 commuters agree with local residents.
