    Much thanks for this. This is the first time I actually have seen this diagram anywhere. Looks like that Green 40 to 840 North ramp is gonna be interesting.

    I know that in the past, the rankings were based only on the largest 40 Metro areas. Im not sure if this has changed, but nontheless.. 31st is an improvement over past years.

    While I dont have a dog in this fight, I do know, and have known for many many years, that Houston is known for both the number, size, and quality in the health care field. I assumed that most people knew about the Texas Medical Center area. Didnt know that Little Rock was known for anything in terms of health care or hospitals, but hey...guess I learn something new every day.

    Amen to that. About the 80 restaurants, does anyone know the number of places currently in downtown? And yes, we should strive to have more places than downtown Greenville, SC.

    Great News, good to see another restaurant/nightspot opening up downtown. We have a nice mix of restaurants developing...... maybe one day we could add a soul food restaurant as well

    Yeah, thats a darn shame. They tried to justify killing it by saying there department didnt own a tranquilizer gun. I agree, that bear didnt look any where as big as people made it out to be. I've seen bigger dogs roaming the streets.

    Sad indeed. I know this years Festival will go on as scheduled, but hopefully it will continue into the future. Its definitely a gem in Winston Salem's crown.

    Triangle road & traffic thread

    Sorry if this has been discussed previously in this thread, but are there any plans to add overhead lights in the median along Interstate 40? Are they waiting til all the construction is finished, or is there another reason for not having the area lighted up? They finally put up the lights along 40 west here in Greensboro and it makes all the difference in the world.

    I bet. Its always cheaper in SC and VA than in NC... The cheapest gas that I ever bought was in SC... maybe around Gaffney... for 67 cents a gallon back in dec 1998. Hard to imagine I could drive from here to Atlanta and back for less than 15 dollars

    Actually I read a few years ago that the DOT was looking at that possibility of adding an extra lane in each direction between Greensboro and the 40/85 split in Orange county. That would be simply amazing. Even in its present condition its kinda amazing... there cant be many places in the country that have a 8-lane interstate running some 30 miles in an non-urban environment.

    Amazing, Never thought I see the day where gas between $2.93 and $2.99 a gallon would spark a gas war. If the day ever comes that I have children... I'll have to tell them of the days when the Kangaroo Station at Holden and Vandalia sparked a gas war and gas was selling for 70 cents a gallon. I think that was 1998 or 1999.

    Actually its funny how much lanes and lights make a city appear bigger or smaller than it actually is. Perfect case in point, I have always thought that Burlington appears to be a bigger place than Greensboro. Especially traveling through at night... with the 8 lanes and the center lights, and the way the city is built up near the highway. You would think Burlington has at least 150,000 in population, not 50,000. Another good example is Salisbury of all places. Go through there at night.... again with the 8 lanes and the center lights A city of 26,000 seems much larger.
