You may wish to test my reading comprehension, but it seems the explanation, for how a DOT letter warning people about trespass by engineers and surveyors for the canceled NC 107 project got out, sounds a little contrived. In fact, an article in the Smoky Mountain News indicates there is no way to kill the beast of a highway proposal. Property owners in the DOT’s sights will just have to keep wondering if it will be up for reconsideration.
