Changes are on the way, said Carl Farmer, city of Wilmington capital projects division engineer.
The city has designed a new realignment for the intersection of Masonboro Loop, Pine Grove and Masonboro Sound roads.
“The new intersection will have Masonboro Loop/Pine Grove traffic moving through the intersection and Masonboro Sound Road coming to a stop at a ‘T’ intersection,” Farmer said.
The project also will include a left turn lane on Masonboro Loop/Pine Grove for left turns onto Masonboro Sound Road and to the adjacent developments.
In addition to the realignment, the project will provide improved drainage at the intersection, Farmer said.
The project is funded by the N.C. Department of Transportation and the city of Wilmington. It will be bid at the end of August 2010, Farmer said.
“This will improve the safety of the intersection,” said N.C. DOT spokeswoman Jennifer Garifo.
