Q. With all the development going on in the area, are there any plans to widen North College Road from Murrayville Road to Castle Hayne? It is only getting more congested and becoming another traffic choke point in the area. Can’t DOT, the city, and other government entities plan ahead instead of react after the fact?

A. Widening is not in the cards for that portion of North College Road.

What will be added though, according to Al Edgerton, an N.C. DOT project manager, is a roundabout where North College Road and N.C. 133 meet in Castle Hayne. That project is set to be let in February 2014.

    That just figures. Population and development density increases, yet infrastructure improvements to support that are not even planned. Twenty years from now we will be playing catch-up, just as we do now and always seem to be doing. Other areas build the infrastructure FIRST to help guide the development. I guess the ability to plan ahead is not allowed and therefore removed from elected officials and government leaders in this area, unless it is some monument, like a convention center or baseball stadium. Routine maintenance seems to also take a back seat. For examples, see the CFPUA or River Walk.
