Why are there no painted lines on the pavement on Pine Valley Drive to Beasley?

Residents chose not to have centerlines on Pine Valley Drive.

The city of Wilmington provided neighborhood residents with the option of having centerlines and wide shoulders or wide shoulders only during the Neighborhood Traffic Management Study in 2004, city spokesman Dylan Lee said.

“The residents at the 2004 Neighborhood Traffic Management Plan meetings indicated that the centerlines were not attractive and voted against having centerlines on their streets,” he said. “The neighborhood decided that they wanted limited pavement markings, so the city utilized the markings to designate walking/biking areas.”

The island in the middle of the road is defined as a “choker island,” Lee said.

“This island was installed as part of the city’s Neighborhood Traffic Management Program and was installed to help reduce speeds and improve safety in the neighborhood,” Lee said.
