Three separate accidents, on three separate days, in the same location made for a tough commute on 105 in Boone this week.
On Monday (August 22) an accident, involving a motorcycle, closed the turnoff to Poplar Grove Road toward The Cottages for a time in the 4pm hour. On Thursday (August 25) an accident, right at the same location but in the southbound lanes, caused major traffic delays starting in the 5pm hour. And once again on Friday (August 26) another accident, in the southbound lanes, caused lengthy delays leaving Boone starting in the 5pm hour.
With the increased traffic due to ASU back in session and the local school systems back in session, motorists are always advised to allow extra travel time, especially in and around Boone.
