What roadwork is being done along College Road?

Ken Little

The N.C. Department of Transportation is modifying crossovers on College Road from Carolina Beach Road to Shipyard Boulevard in Wilmington, said agency spokeswoman Tammy Stewart.

“The work will reduce conflict points at various intersections and improve safety along (College Road),” Stewart said.

A $1.7 million contract was awarded to Barnhill Contracting Co. of Tarboro for the work. The project is expected to be completed by Dec. 1, 2011, Stewart said.

    You should add some language about the certain council-members and legislators who are putting pressure on NCDOT to leave their median cut open. Heaven forbid they have to turn right and make a u-turn at the next signal. Personal convenience should not take precendence over the safety of the general public.

    Are they considering opening up the medium completely and changing it into a turning lane, such as the ones on Market Street or Carolina Beach Road? It seems that would be a better solution since so many developments have entrances off the area of S. College Road. It would make it much more convenient for those needing to turn into those developments. The way it is now is dangerous, but closing these openings off completely is just going to account for more traffic making u-turns at the light, which is several blocks from the Weybridge entrance. I’ve already noticed it getting backed up at that light and it wasn’t even at rush hour!
