The N200 road is open. I drove down the frontage road from N550 to N200 yesterday to check out the new frontage road. The frontage road is paved from N550 to N200. N200 road itself is a gravel road. I was curious about the new frontage road because I often see frontage road traffic moving faster than the traffic on Highway 59. I discovered that the speed limit is 45 mph on the frontage road. Also, the new highway is more easily visible from the frontage road.
