Here We Go!

After six long years of waiting, the wait is over. Construction on the Shaw Ferry Road/Hwy. 11 intersection is underway. After some last minute delays that seem to have been handled by State Representative Jimmy Matlock, contractors began moving dirt Friday. Completion date is uncertain due to weather.

The improvements to the intersection will will be such a welcome change but will not come without some inconveniences during the construction period. We will all have to be patient. In the big picture the construction time will only be brief.

Many of us have been very vocal in our desire to see the much needed improvements at the intersection and have been regularly communicating our views to state and local officials. It seems only appropriate that we be just as willing to communicate our thanks and appreciation to those same officials.
