Smart Road link is just plain smart
By William H. Fralin Jr.
It was most surprising to learn that it has become the editorial position of The Roanoke Times to no longer enthusiastically support the building of the Smart Road (“County makes a silly Smart Road request,” Jan. 20 editorial, The Burgs). In fact, apparently the region should just throw in the towel on ever getting this important project finished and sit back and accept whatever road improvements the state deigns to give us.
Why chase “pipe dreams” when there are smaller (and more accessible) fish to catch?
