We know that there is a protected grass issue which is delaying the final phase of the Preston Highway expansion program.
The stretch between Ruhl Acres and Highway 44 have hit a snag as EPA officials try to figure out how to protect the Glade Cress grass.
But the other sections of new Preston Highway, along with a portion of Old Preston, must be finished as soon as possible.
First, the culvert on Old Preston Highway needs to be replaced and the road reopened. Deciding that the road should not be fixed and reopened is not an option.
