The full question:
“Why did the city/state go to all the trouble of time, effort and money erecting a cement traffic island at the intersection of Carolina Beach Road and Wellington Avenue and erecting three signs showing ‘No Left Turns’ only to remove the island but not the sign? In my opinion this was a great idea erecting this island to eliminate accidents and minimize waiting times for drivers who only want to turn right.”
And the answer:
The island was installed as part of the traffic improvements associated with a nearby development project, said Don Bennett, city of Wilmington traffic engineer.
“The island was not constructed according to the approved plan and had to be removed,” he said. “The signs and the turn restriction are still valid. The design and effectiveness of the island are being reviewed.”
