    Funny how they (the county or state) just looked at this HWY again a couple of months ago and determined it would cost to much money to do the right thing and fix it by widening it and adding two lanes. They chose the cheap option apparently. They were aware of the accidents and deaths per year that happen here. Thanks so much for spending time and money to find it is just to much money to save lives and make safer road for all.
