The city of Wilmington’s plans for Wrightsville Avenue include bike lanes and sidewalks in some areas. But because of budget constraints, the city has yet to decide when the improvements will occur.
The city’s Wrightsville Avenue 2030 plan calls for bike lanes connecting the area near South College Road to Oleander Drive.
Sidewalks are listed as a high priority for the stretch of Wrightsville Avenue connecting Hawthorne Drive to the area near South College Road, according to the plan. Sidewalks between Hawthorne and Oleander on Wrightsville are listed as medium priority, according to the plan.
On the other side of Oleander Drive, on Airlie Road, no bike lanes are planned. But sidewalks are recommended and listed as a medium priority, according to the plan.
Wrightsville Avenue 2030 is a land use and transportation plan that was adopted in April 2010. The plan can be downloaded from the city’s web site.
