Q. Who is paying for the road improvements in front of St. Mark Catholic Church on Eastwood Road and why weren’t left turns prohibited coming out of the church like they are at Windemere and Long Leaf Acres? Eastwood Road was supposed to be a superstreet design all the way down to Rogersville Road limiting left turns. How did St. Mark get an exception?
A. The roadway improvements being installed on Eastwood Road are in conjunction with continued development of the Autumn Hall site, said Donald Bennett, city of Wilmington traffic engineer.
The Autumn Hall developer is tasked with making the improvements, Bennett said.
“The master plan for the development will eventually add a main entrance across from John Paul Drive that will likely be a conventional traffic signal design rather than a superstreet configuration,” Bennett said. “Since Autumn Hall is being constructed in phases, each phase is tasked with making the improvements as identified by the Traffic Impact Analysis for that phase.”
