    They should widen Leesville Rd. all the way out to New Leesville Rd. so that all that traffic has somewhere to go. It is planned eventually. As for the Cult remark, that is a little unfair that church has probably been there longer than you have and definatly longer than most neighborhoods out that way. Don't blame them.


    They do not need to widen that part from I-540 to Leesville Road cause that Cult that is there should pay for this. Second, all you people could not wait to unload all that land and turn country farms and houses into snootie neighborhoods so you can surfer by sitting in a little traffic during peak times..... Your babies can hold it in.. U have nothing better to do

    Good! They also need to widen Leesville Rd from I540 to Leesville Rd extension (near St Francis Assisi) from 2 lanes to 4.
