Two Towns Making Street Changes and Improvements

Two local towns have been making improvements and changes to their downtown streets.  North Wilkesboro and Wilkesboro are in the midst of projects.  Wilkesboro announced recently that they will be going to a 4-way Stop at West and Main and at Bridge and Main beginning later this month.  Flashing lights will remain in place until everyone is familiar with the change.  Then the lights will be removed and replaced with 4-Way Stop Signs.  As 3WC reported last week, The StreetScape Project in Downtown North Wilkesboro should be finished within a few weeks.  The project is at the Intersection of Main and Ninth streets in downtown North Wilkesboro.

Hole in the Wall

Who put a hole in the wall?  The Wilkes Sheriff's Office is investigating damage to property at a local business.  C & L Manufacturing in Hays reported damage to the side of their building.  According to the Wilkes Sheriff's Report, it appears that someone was traveling too fast, missed a curve in the road, and went straight into the side of the building.  There was a large hole in the wall, but Sheriff's Investigators found no evidence of a vehicle.  Apparently, the hit and run driver collected any parts from the wrecked vehicle and left the scene.  Damages are listed at 1000 dollars.
