HILLSVILLE — Though negotiations with Mount Airy, N.C., on buying water to supply Interstate 77’s Exit 1 have been legally and technically difficult, Carroll officials sound optimistic that the deal will be closed soon.
Ever since the Love’s truck stop located at the Interstate 77 interchange in Lambsburg, Carroll officials have tried to secure a water supply that would allow for more growth there.
County representatives drilled wells and worked on forging an agreement with the city of Mount Airy across the Virginia-North Carolina line.
