Why are drivers not allowed to turn left onto Wrightsville Avenue from northbound South College Road?

The left turn was restricted several years ago to allow additional green light time on South College Road (N.C. 132 south), N.C. Department of Transportation spokeswoman Tammy Stewart said.

“Eliminating the left turn onto Wrightsville Avenue has eliminated angle crashes and decreases congestion on N.C. 132,” Stewart said.
