STOP NEEDLESS NCDOT DESTRUCTION OF ICONIC HISTORIC MIDLAND ROAD, our five-mile avenue lined with towering longleaf pines - one of the most beautiful avenues in the United States. STOP NEEDLESS WASTE OF OUR TAX DOLLARS, destruction of our quality of life, heritage, and economy which is based in the unique beauty and character of the area.

-- There is NO DOCUMENTED SAFETY JUSTIFICATION for tree removal at the entrance to Southern Pines, or a roundabout at Hwy 22 or urban superstreet ramps at Hwy One, per NCDOT Midland Road Corridor Study showing no unusual accident incidence.

-- There is NO DOCUMENTED SAFETY JUSTIFICATION for major tree removal, crossover closures, road widening for new intersections at multiple points (hundreds of linear feet tree removal at each), per NCDOT Midland Road Corridor Study showing no unusual accident incidence.

-- TREES DO NOT CAUSE ACCIDENTS; incompetent drivers cause accidents. Midland Rd accidents in 5-year period (less than half with injuries) were mainly in treeless sections of road, documented.

-- COST-EFFECTIVE options include more stop signs, street lights, lower speed limit with enforcement.

-- Midland Road must have NATIONAL PARK/SCENIC BYWAY PROTECTION.

    The speed limit is fine at 45 mph. Midland Road is a beautiful road.
