Cross Concerns

Updated: Monday, March 25 2013, 09:55 PM EDT

Some Haywood County residents say after two years, it's time for a roadside memorial to go. 


A cross and flowers were placed along Highway 19/23 by the family of D.J. Gray after he crashed his motorcycle between Canton and Clyde and died. They say they go to the site to remember him. But nearby residents say a state right-of-way is not an appropriate place for a personal memorial site.


The Department of Transportation agrees saying it does not permit roadside memorials that include crosses and wreaths. But it does have a program allowing for trees and shrubs.
