I just got a call from listener Tim, in Henderson County, expressing major concerns about possible traffic manipulation on Monday, ahead of the Mountain Moral Monday event in downtown.

Tim cited a number of traffic shifts, and DOT type activity on the Interstates around town, as well as some obstacles in town itself.

He departed Hendersonville around 4 PM, and arrived at Mountain Moral Monday, a little past 6 PM.  All due to traffic hassles.

Tim doesn't think it was a coincidence, as much of it was gone after 7 PM, when he passed by again.

Could this be, as Tim pointed out, something akin to NJ's Bridgegate with Chris Chistie?

As I have noted, for a smaller crowd than last year, the traffic was certainly worse.

I would love to hear your thoughts.
