Recently, I moved into a new apartment. While it is much bigger and is very beautiful, there is also a lot of noise once you exit onto the main roadways. As it turns out, all of the road noise is coming from the fact that there are construction crews rebuilding and expanding the main road just outside of the apartment complex. But this isn't the only area that is receiving attention.
Over the past several years, North Carolina has become the center of attention because more and more people are moving here than ever before. Because of this sudden influx of people, the old roads that once served their purpose are being broken down and re-built to accommodate the large swell of people who are now living in various pockets of space. While construction crews are noisy, this is a more accepted form of noise because it is tangible. You can go out at any point during a regular business day and find construction crews hard at work.
