    Exactly which intersection and when should they be finished? I live on Creedmoor near Crabtree and need to know.

    That is a shame - I could have scored major points!

    As a general note -- AVOID THAT AREA AT ALL TIMES EVERY DAY!!! I will drive 5 miles out of my way to avoid driving in front of Crabtree -- and it usually saves me 10 minutes. A large portion of the problem is that people trying to get onto the beltline (especially the inner) wait until the VERY LAST POSSIBLE SECOND to get over to get on the beltline. Then those coming out of crabtree and trying to get over to Glenwood and out of the beltline lanes cause the otehr problems. So -- to avoid the problems -- avoid the road all together -- where possible!!!

    Nor does it say WHEN to avoid it Friday.

    Precisely! I'm starting to get used to this level of detail.

    I agree BE. I travel that area everyday going to work and back home and it's crowded enough as it is. I'd like more details WRAL.

    Great job of reporting. Mind telling readers which block of Glenwood? Glenwood and Creedmoor, Glenwood and Lead Mine/Blue Ridge or some point north or south of Crabtree?
