A planned bypass of Route 460 around the town of Windsor died during the McDonnell Administration. Now the Army Corps of Engineers is reviewing a scaled down version to decide whether to issue a permit to the state.
There is opposition. Southern Environmental Law Center attorney Trip Pollard said the new version of the bypass is as flawed as the original. He said this has been a project in search of justification and this version would pass through farms,100 year old cypress trees and high quality wetlands.
