Can DOT stop rude drivers from jumping into the line of traffic for N.C. 133 on Eagles Island?

Ken Little

Q. Can anything be done to prevent people from using the southbound U.S. 421 lane near the battleship and the Cape Fear Memorial Bridge to pass everyone and then jump into the N.C. 133 lane at the very end? It absolutely destroys the traffic flow during busy times. Signage or barriers perhaps?

A. “It’s expected that the causeway widening project and the completion of the Wilmington bypass will help this congestion. Traffic should flow much better on the causeway and should relieve this concern,” said Katherine Hite, N.C. Department of Transportation Division 3 traffic engineer.

Hite said the DOT has looked at various signage options, but does not plan to install signs in that area.

“There are already an abundance of signs on this section of roadway and they would likely be overlooked,” she said.

Will the causeway widening include new lighting on the approaches to the Cape Fear Memorial Bridge?

Why did the DOT install cameras on poles between the Cape Fear Memorial Bridge and Leland?
