The photos above show a few of the many numbered flags left on the farm as part of the Highway 31 or the Carolina Bays Parkway Extension Study. You can see our farm roads and wetland areas in the backgrounds.
You can also contact the Parkway Project by visiting their website and telling them that THIS MATTERS TO YOU! They have both phone numbers and email links on their webpage.
The map photos show both the proposed routes as well as the type of road they are planing to build. At least six of these routes would DESTROY THE FARM. In addition to the multi-lane highway, they plan to build side roads along it, taking even more private and farm land. This style of road also means that crossing it will not be possible. Since our farmland is on both sides of the current road this presents yet another problem with these highway designs.
This is not a fight against highway progress but rather a request to take the highway around, rather than through the heart of the farm or choose an alternative route.
Not only is our farmland, our business and our homes endangered by the proposed highway. Our Local History could be lost. For more about the history that's happened here follow this link to our History Page.
