The city does not consider the official name of the roadway to be the South 17th St. extension, Wilmington [Map this] city spokeswoman Malissa Talbert said.
“The official name is just South 17th Street, from Market to South College Road. It is believed that the term ‘extension’ came in on the development plans — surveys — because it was literally a plan to extend an existing road. However, the official name remained South 17th Street,” Talbert said.
