Collinsville Road widening

To the editor:

I read in the July 12 issue that Collinsville Road widening at an estimated cost of $520,000 has been postponed to the 2013 budget by the DOT.

I live on south Highway 9 and travel Collinsville regularly as a route west. As I drive this route it is unusual for me to encounter more than two to three cars, and never a logging truck. The occasional horse trailer is counted among the two to three cars I mentioned.

I would surely like to know which part of Collinsville would be widened – and why. It is among our prettiest roads, deserving of the title “Scenic.”
