The full question:
“It appeared that the traffic lights at the on/off ramp on Village Road in Leland would be erected using the large metal poles instead of hanging from wires. Why was that aspect of the project removed? The concrete bases were jack-hammered and are no longer there.”
Funding appears to be the issue.
“We had a construction revision for the Village Road project in Leland that deleted this work from our contract,” N.C. Department of Transportation spokeswoman Tammy Stewart said.
The work that was deleted will be included in the future Causeway project that will include a diverging diamond interchange at Village Road and U.S. 17/74/76, she said.
“This future project is not scheduled at this time,” Stewart said.
