Construction traffic from a development in the extraterritorial jurisdiction of Mint Hill is damaging roads and unnerving residents of a neighboring subdivision, routing through their streets to prevent damage to their own roads.
The development, located on Hough Road, across from Arlington Baptist Church, first began construction around 2008, when they caused the same problem. Construction traffic has recently started again, further damaging Meadow Hollow Road, the road used to reach the development from the rear of the property.
Vincent Ammirato, a resident of the neighborhood and street is working to get to the bottom of the issue and find out why construction traffic is using his neighborhood to access the new development, causing damage to Meadow Hollow Road, while avoiding roads within the development itself.
