BOARDMAN, NORTH CAROLINA (May 31, 2017) – An intersection responsible for multiple fatal crashes in less than a year is raising concerns among local residents, according to a local news source. (map)
The intersection is located on Highway 74, in front of the Sun-Do Gas Station. In the last 8 years, residents have reported at least 50 accidents, some of which have been fatal. The North Carolina Department of Transportation has said they are adding flashing signs, and have plans to change the intersection into an interchange… but the plans to modify the intersection are not scheduled to begin until 2020.
Many local residents are concerned that in the time it takes to begin construction on the intersection, more lives will be lost. Several locals say they specifically avoid the intersection because of the dangerous conditions involved.
