What Is Going There? July 2015 Edition

Last Updated on July 12, 2015 2:28 pm

“What is going into…..?” That question, or a version of it, is one of the most often ask into the Watauga Roads social media outlets. With so much construction occurring in the county and town, it's always of note on how traffic might be impacted once the projects are complete. Generally it's not much of an issue, however with five sites on Blowing Rock Road alone, traffic congestion will certainly be impacted.

So with that in mind, and that there are other projects going on county wide, here is a list of projects that gets ask about most.
