Q. Are there any plans to add a bicycle lane along Rogersville Road? The bicycle traffic along this road has greatly increased with cyclists using it more to get from Wrighsville Avenue to the Gary Shell Cross-City Trail on Eastwood Road. Rogersville Road is narrow and I have seen some near-misses on the curves. Cyclists ride in the middle of the lanes along with cars and this is quite dangerous.
A. There are plans to add bicycle lanes; there just isn’t any money for the project.
The Cape Fear Commutes 2035 Transportation Plan recommends the installation of bicycle lanes on Rogersville Road between Eastwood Road and Wrightsville Avenue, said Mike Kozlosky, the executive director of the Wilmington Urban Area Metropolitan Planning Organization.
But planners have not found funding for the improvements, he said.
