It’s you who calls people idiots and you sound like one who has a share of the current solution, like those guys with gas station or construction company. Eminent domain or not, I drew a line through land where it makes good sense to me and to many others. Of course you guys needed lawyers and regulations to inflate and justify project cost and whole country is paying majority of the bridge bill off federal funds. And yep - made with loads of foreign stainless steel. (election promises
Two of Pappy lane houses are pretty much ruined, so it could have been less expensive properties to be messed with and paid off. Mirlo beach soundside properties’ value is down, rental coverage will suck - I’m sure all are happy about not touching the damn swamp, are they not?
People buying sunset side paid extra premium for their land, while houses by the road are cheaper with barely any access or view. Cheaper retreat for beachgoers but I’m not one of those.
Elitist or not, but choosing between one-two houses and two dozen of ruined investments doesn’t make it a hard choice.
but as is - less rentals competition for Waves and Salvo which many would appreciate.
It would be cool if the bridge was less controversial project, and I think it could have been cheaper built on land and it could have had less financial impact on Rodanthe.
I’m sure my amateurish idea is not the worst, and I’m sure guys did consider that, so what were the reasons not to do it that way?
