Q. Are there any plans to repave the intersection of Hawk Road and Old Fort Road in Gorman Plantation in Ogden? It is a mess of patches and dips and the traffic volume is high, because it’s an access road to Military Cutoff Road for all of Middle Sound Loop. A traffic count was done not long ago through Gorman Plantation, but the intersection continues to deteriorate.
A. Work is planned at the intersection, but not any time soon, said Gerard M. Taylor, New Hanover County maintenance engineer for the North Carolina Department of Transportation’s Division of Highways.
Money to pay for the project is one potential roadblock.
“State Route 1940 — Covil Farm/Hawk Road — is currently planned for an asphalt treatment in fiscal year 2016,” Taylor said.
That job, however, is “subject to county-wide priorities and available funding,” Taylor said.
