    EXCELLENT!!!! Save lives and save gas! It’s a beautiful rural road, and one can “smell the roses” so to speak, while slowing down to 45 mph. Next stop, remove the HUGE interstate trucks from 151, as they take a shortcut across Rte. 6 from Rte. 29 to get to I-64 and I-81 more quickly! Great job to our supervisors, continue to keep Nelsonians safe, BEFORE more tragic loss of life, or injury.
