Rowan County Leaders Want New Exit North of Salisbury

Rowan County Commissioners say a new exit north of Salisbury is needed. Last week, they told county staff to apply for $500,000 for an interchange justification report. The idea is to make the case for creating a new exit in the three-mile gap that exists between exit 76 and exit 79. On one side it would take drivers to the town of East Spencer, where unprecedented economic development is already taking place both in the industrial sector and in residential. PHOTO credit: WBTV
