  1. North Carolina's control cities were always a pet peeve of mine. Some examples: 85 south to 485: Rock Hill 85 North to 485: Says Huntersville/Matthews, then once you take the exit, it says Columbia/Statesville. Totally confusing. 74E to 485: Greensboro/Columbia (makes sense, Atlanta style) but then switches to Pineville/Huntersville once you take the exit and encounter the split. Meanwhile, in the Midwest, St. Louis has control cities hundreds of miles away (Tulsa, Kansas City, Chicago, Memphis). In Chicago, 57 south is labeled as Memphis. While this may be extreme, I think the middle ground of 285 in Atlanta is the best practice. Any exit onto 285 is labeled as the next two interstates control cities in any given direction: 85S to 285 on the north side (spaghetti junction) is Augusta/Macon and Chattanooga/Birmingham. Hitting it from I-20W you get Greenville/Chattanooga, and Macon/Montgomery. For travelers unfamiliar with the area, it at least gives some sense of direction. A whole lot more than if it said Alpharetta/Stone Mountain or some NCish nonsense like that. As if anyone cares where Rock Hill and Statesville are Super annoying. Meanwhile all references to I-40 in the Wilmington area are Raleigh Raleigh Raleigh Raleigh (as they should be)
  2. I am intimately familiar with this project. They/(we?) were supposed to have a big hard hat n shovel groundbreaking in late June, but alas, Covid.
  3. To be fair, if you're in NY, does it really matter if you move to Hacksensack, Flemington, Short Hills, or Morristown? You really just move out to "Jersey."
  4. Union County is our own piece of North Texas.
  5. FLL would be nice. Caribbean is useless from CLT, almost everything has to go through BWI
  6. It makes getting to Wilmington much easier. No clue why it just couldn’t have been extended a bit further past stupid Masrhville.
  7. I'm really starting to love this infill project. It totally has a Medellin vibe to it.
  8. I heard this is about to change in Weddington.
  9. Other than Charlotte, a higher ratio of F500 to metro population is correlated with...having major league baseball. Just an observation...
  10. The Heathrow 1/2/3 tube stop is god knows how far from T3. It took me 20 minutes at least back in October. CLT would be the inverse situation to ATL. In ATL, you can ride straight to the airport, but the rental cars (and associated ballantynish district) are a quick people mover away. I'm talking 2-3 minutes max. In CLT, the Transit Stop and pseudo-Ballantyne would be a people mover ride away while the rental cars are in the garage right next to the terminal. Either is better than DFW, which I suffer through twice a month...the bus ride to the rental car center way out in freaking Waco or Abilene. No clue even how far the DART bus ride is.
  11. But the Roman columns from 1995!
  12. Good points re: Atlanta, however I’d posit that chick fila is doing just fine. Lines are wild
  13. That’s funny, it doesn’t look like the NW quadrant to me
  14. Allegiant spending $50 million to build a base at Concord Regl. Will base 2 aircraft there as well as flight crews.
  15. Meanwhile, an actual announcement of substance.... https://www.charlotteobserver.com/news/business/article240880021.html
  16. It's now called BUCKHEAD ATLANTA, which is quite creative.
  17. It will be great for that region. That part of PA is about as remote as it gets.
