Why was the ‘Entering Lumber River Basin’ sign never replaced after it was taken down?

Jim Ware

Q. There used to be a sign on US-17 southbound (before the turnoff to N.C. 87 going to Southport) that stated “Entering Lumber River Basin.” It was taken down last year when U.S. 17 was repaved and never replaced. Why wasn’t this sign replaced? Thank you.

A. Your question got almost immediate reaction from the N.C. Department of Transportation.

Here’s what spokeswoman Tammy Stewart had to say on July 24: “The department was not aware that the sign was missing.  Crews replaced the sign today.”


When were signs warning drivers that ‘Bridge freezes before road’ changed?

Why are there covered-up stop signs on Salisbury Street in Wrightsville Beach?
