Truck turnarounds slated for U.S. 64Written by Admin
A workshop on a plan to build truck turn-around locations and information stations on U.S. 64 between Franklin and Highlands in Macon County will be held from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 22, at the Cullasaja Gorge Rescue and Fire Department.
Large trucks are currently banned from using the road between Franklin and Highlands, which is a narrow two-lane with sharp curves and a steep grade. Despite warning signs, some trucks do use this route.
The state Department of Transportation is considering building additional pull-overs at the U.S. 23/441 and N.C. 28 interchange, plus put truck turn-arounds at three other intersections on U.S. 64.
