Plans to Expand U.S. 321/U.S. 421 to 4 Lanes Will Cost Local Homeowners, Landowners $92.6M

The Appalachian, ASU’s student newspaper, is reporting that new plans for the U.S. 321/U.S. 421 expansion project, running through Vilas to Boone’s N.C. 105 Bypass, show how the project will impact local landowners as the project aims to resolve current and anticipated congestion on the road. The project, at a cost of $92.6M, would expand the road from a single lane to two lanes in each direction, according to the project website. Photo credit: Evan Bates, The Appalachian
