Donald Bennett, Wilmington city traffic engineer, said Front Street from Queen Street to Burnett Boulevard (Carolina Beach Road) is also a designated N.C. bike route.
“When the project to resurface Front Street was being designed, consideration was given to these bike routes,” Bennett said.
Local N.C. Department of Transportation staff, city bike/pedestrian planning personnel and the N.C. Bike/Pedestrian Unit in Raleigh “collaborated to provide bike facilities where practical during the resurfacing project,” Bennett said.
So it is not likely Front Street will be remarked as it was before.
