The Town of Troy is planning to ask a District Court judge to stop the North Carolina Department of Transportation from moving forward with the Hwy. 24/27 bypass project until there is resolution on the town’s request for more stoplights and traditional intersections on the highway.

Troy Town Manager Greg Zephir told WMTG Nov. 4 that the board has “hired counsel and authorized legal action, if warranted, to seek appropriate relief.”

The Montgomery Herald reported Nov. 5 that Troy town officials and members of the Troy Economic Development group met Monday night with attorney Bob Hornick of the Brough Law Firm of Chapel Hill, and that the lawyer plans to seek a temporary restraining order against the DOT.

On its website, the Brough Law Firm claims “over thirty years experience in local government and land use law.” The firm serves as general counsel to a number of municipalities in central North Carolina, including Cary, Carrboro and Hillsborough, and several in neighboring Moore County, including Aberdeen, Carthage, Cameron and Robbins.
