Garden Parkway announcement Friday

The N.C. Turnpike Authority said it will announce its recommended route for the Garden Parkway Friday morning.

The authority will release the federally approved environmental documents for the toll road, as well as its choice for where the road should go.

The toll road will begin at I-85 east of Gastonia. It will loop through south Gaston County, cross the Catawba River and end at I-485 in Mecklenburg near Charlotte/Douglas International Airport.

Announcing the preferred route is a big step. But with the road's cost at more than $1.2 billion, construction may be delayed. N.C. Transportation Secretary Gene Conti has said the road might not be a priority.

What the hell is the purpose of this 1.2 billion dollar road??? Will it really save any time from taking 85 to 485? Why can't we widen the southern portion of 485? These DOT people are idiots!!!

Mike chill out. This is a toll road that will eventually pay for itself.

The people who will never drive on 485 still has to pay for it

I take I-85 North to I-485 East ever day so I'm someone who would supposedly benefit from it. Sure, I guess it would help a little bit - but not a lot. This doesn't seem high-priority to me.
