Roosevelt often used the word "bully" as an adjective meaning superb/wonderful. The Bully Pulpit features news, reasoned discourse, opinion and some humor.

Segment of eastern leg of Northern Beltway in Winston-Salem will begin in 2014, governor says

(By PAUL GARBER, Winston-Salem Journal) - Construction of a portion of the eastern leg of the Northern Beltway will begin in 2014, and the state will start buying up $34 million in rights-of-way for the project starting next year, Gov. Bev Perdue announced Wednesday.

Construction for the portion connecting U.S. 158 to Business 40 in western Kernersville is expected to cost $156 million. The full eastern leg will connect U.S. 52 north of Winston-Salem to U.S. 311.

"This project has never been scheduled before, and you have got it in writing today," Perdue said.
