Apparently We Need More Dead People
As unbelievable as it may seem, according to the most recent study by the Tennessee Department Of Transportation, there have not been enough people killed or crippled at the intersection of Shaw Ferry and Hwy 11 to warrant any improvements. Read the letter yourself.
Local officials, state officials and citizens have been trying for years to get improvements to the intersection which by anyone's account is one of the most dangerous and heavily traveled intersections in the county. This report is just the latest in a long line of ridiculous reports handed down by TDOT. For more information on the past and ongoing efforts to have the intersection improved visit www.loudoncounty.com.
I guess we will just have to start contacting state officials again.
Wouldn't you love to make these TDOT officials drive through the intersection several times a day?
