Why is the traffic light at the intersection of Ploof Road and U.S. 17 north in Leland/Belville set to stop northbound traffic even when there is no traffic attempting to turn onto or from Ploof Road?

The device to detect waiting vehicles on Ploof Road is malfunctioning, causing problems with the traffic light. The detector malfunctioned after the paving on the road was destroyed by large trucks, said Joe Chance, N.C. Department of Transportation deputy division traffic engineer. The DOT has plans in place to fix the road and then the detector, Chance added.

“We do have a plan to fix it and soon,” he said.

Jon Roan, assistant district engineer, said N.C. DOT is working on the design to fix the road, but does not have a construction time line for it yet.
