Are there any plans to repave the Northbend subdivision off of Middle Sound Loop Road?

The N.C. Department of Transportation will do an on-site inspection to assess the conditions of roadways in the Northbend subdivision, said Gerald Taylor, N.C. DOT county maintenance engineer.

A specific date for any road work in the subdivision has not been set.

The review will be limited to the sections of roadways currently maintained by N.C. DOT. For roadway sections not maintained by N.C. DOT, contact the entity that maintains the road, such as a homeowners association, the developer or private property owners.

N.C. DOT has limited information on roadways not state-maintained because there is no requirement for a private street owner to register maintenance with N.C. DOT. “Nor do we maintain a list,” N.C. DOT spokeswoman Tammy Stewart said.

The type of resurfacing treatment can vary from slurry, mircosurfacing, bituminous surface treatment, nova chip, plant mix asphalt or other methods, Stewart said.

Paved roads are reviewed every two years to assess their condition, she said.

“The timetable for resurfacing is compared to the total county roadway sections in need,” Stewart said.

The sections of roadway included in a project and the surface treatment applied is determined based on the pavement condition survey, average daily traffic, and available funding.

“Consequently, a date as to when the above mentioned subdivision would be resurfaced again cannot be given,” Stewart said.

The New Hanover County Maintenance office can be contacted with questions about roadway deficiencies at (910) 341-0500. That office can generally provide a more specific response time, Stewart said.

    To add – I have heard that the CFPUA has agreed to pave the roads where they’ve damaged them due to mandatory sewer hookups. Of course they are stalling because they can’t even handle what they specialize in – water quality and distribution. Nontheless, you need to notify CFPUA also about paving the roads and maybe they will eventually follow through.
