A quick thought.
John Oxendine's loopy idea to re-ignite the intown Interstate fight awakened a long dormant idea.
What we need are two limited access highways, one connecting Forsyth (the town not the county) to Cartersville on the west side and to Commerce on the east side. These arteries would divert shipping traffic from both the ports of Savannah and Brunswick.
It's simple. We need to get the tractor-trailers off the perimeter.
