Why is Ashton Drive marked ‘Private’ on the Independence Boulevard side?

Ken Little

The street was constructed by the developer of the Irongate Business Park, and the road has not been submitted for acceptance as a public street, said Donald Bennett, city of Wilmington traffic engineer.

  “When the original signs were installed it was not the standard to denote private streets with the yellow banding at the end of the sign,” Bennett said.

Maintenance activities have replaced the sign at the Independence Boulevard end of Ashton. When the sign at the Shipyard Boulevard end needs maintenance, it will also note Ashton as private, Bennett said.
