Dot10

Opposition is reportedly mounting to NC DOT’s plan for widening Kanuga Road.

The plans stem from a number of tragic deaths in motor vehicle accidents along Kanuga Road in recent years.

Signs are now appearing all along that road opposing DOT plans. Hendersonville City Council heard from citizens opposed to the widening at their last meeting. And citizens and businesses along Kanuga Road are reportedly organizing to expand their opposition and approach other state and local governments with their concerns.

Some of the businesses along Kanuga Road say the current plans could force them out of business if implemented.

The NC DOT plans calls for the current lanes along Kanuga Road to be widened to 11 feet, with a 4 foot paved shoulder for bikes and pedestrians, The plans also call for a 5 foot wide sidewalk along Kanuga Road from Erkwood Drive o Church Street inside the city.
