Q. Why are there covered-up stop signs on Salisbury Street going toward Causeway Drive in Wrightsville Beach? Did somebody realize the stop signs would be inefficient for traffic and cover them up?

A. The signs on Salisbury Street are covered in lieu of impending construction.

According to Amanda Glynn with NCDOT, construction will begin on Oct. 1.

“The Wrightsville Beach Bridge may be in a two-lane pattern to allow for the grid deck replacement. Once this pattern is in place, the traffic traveling west on Salisbury will be brought to a stop before they merge in with traffic from Causeway before crossing the bridge.”
