Does anyone doubt that the 50 yards or so past Westgate on Interstate 240 west is the worst piece of highway in North Carolina? And every halfhearted attempt to patch it up only seems to make matters worse. My guess is that nothing serious will get done until a busload of clueless tourists goes out in a blaze of glory and all three networks salivate over the recriminations that follow. In any case, it’s a disgrace to our fair city, don’t you think?
