It is the Highway 34 intersection through Nevis that most bothers residents as a safety hazard. County roads 2 and 13 cross the busy highway at an angle. There wasn't money in the budget to straighten it out, DOT officials said, so some Nevis residents have suggested a lower speed limit through town. (Sarah Smith / Enterprise)
