U.S. 501 improvements should also ease traffic

I just saw a report about improvements being considered for U.S. 501. But no mention was made on how to solve the congestion that occurs each morning on U.S. 501 toward Conway.

I cannot understand why the lane cannot be extended between Tanger Mall and Carolina Forest Boulevard. Cars race up the right hand lane and cut into the traffic, making it impossible to move forward. If the lane were extended, cars could make the right hand turn onto Carolina Forest Boulevard without having to wait until the light changes, saving time and congestion.
