I read the story on the problem with Route 9 going west out of Wilmington with great bemusement. Especially the line about needing to “study” the problem.
Here’s your study: the road is washing away because of erosion. This often happens when a road is too close to a river. Does no one see the correlation between this, extremely heavy rain, a lot of traffic and much heavier, oversized loads and the resultant vibrations on a very soggy, very steep embankment?
And here’s your solution: move the road!
I realize this will entail the expense of eminent domaining several properties. This expense will not decrease, however, by waiting until a “study” is completed. Nor will a “study” change things.
All a “study” will do is waste taxpayer money. Does someone have a political debt that needs paid off? Take it out of your pocket... not ours. Thank you for your time and consideration. Peace.
