What the new road will look like

Written by 

About $1.5 million in roadwork is planned to accommodate the increased traffic on South Main Street and Hyatt Creek Roads from the Super Wal-Mart and Home Depot development. There will be two entrances to the development: one off Hyatt Creek Road and one off South Main Street. Here’s a description of what the new road will look like:

U.S. 23-74 on-and-off ramps on the Anderson Auto side

• There will be a roundabout in the middle of Hyatt Creek Road. Drivers coming off the by-pass will go through the roundabout at the bottom of the exit ramp. The roundabout was chosen in lieu of a traffic light because it will move traffic more quickly. A traffic light would back up traffic all the way up the exit ramp and onto the bypass.

• There will be a dedicated right-turn lane coming from the development and leading up the on-ramp heading toward Asheville.

Entrance to the development on Hyatt Creek Road

• Hyatt Creek Road will be five lanes between the by-pass and the entrance to the development.

• Coming from the bypass toward the entrance there will be three lanes: two lanes are left-turn only into the development and one continues straight ahead on Hyatt Creek Rd.

• Leaving the development and going toward the by-pass, there will be two lanes: one is a dedicated right-turn lane to get on the bypass and one will be for going straight.

• Coming from South Main Street toward the entrance, there will be three lanes: one is a right-turn into the development or straight thru, one is straight-thru only and one is a left-turn only into the Huddle House.

• Leaving the development heading toward South Main Street, there will be two lanes: one left-turn only and one right-turn only.

• There will be a traffic light at the entrance.

Entrance to the development on South Main Street

• South Main Street will be three lanes around the entrance.

• Two lanes will be for straight-thru traffic, one in both directions.

• Approaching from town, there will an extra lane for right-turns only into the development.

• Approaching from the other way, the extra lane will be for left-turns only into the development.

• There will be a traffic light at the entrance.

This Must Be the Place

    art theplaceI did it again. It’s 9 a.m. last Saturday at the starting line of the Cashiers Trail Mix five-mile backwoods race. I knew I should have gotten more sleep the night before, should have at least had something to eat that morning. Shouldn’t have overindulged in the libations of Friday night, nor said the things I now regretted to my girlfriend.
