Gov. Bev Perdue visits Mint Hill Tuesday to give a speech about how the federal stimulus package will be spent in North Carolina. Perdue will speak at 12:40 at The Park on Fairview. She will talk about the widening project for Highway 218, the second highest rated road project on MUMPO‘s list of shovel ready projects. The road will be widened from Interstate 485 to Anson County and will relieve the traffic which bypasses Highway 74 and is a popular route for 18 wheelers and beach traffic.
