The N.C. Department of Transportation is including bicycle lanes on Wrightsville Avenue as part of an upcoming resurfacing project, confirmed Mike Kozlosky, executive director of the Wilmington Urban Area Metropolitan Planning Organization. The bike lanes along Wrightsville will be between Military Cutoff Road and Greenville Avenue, he said. The bike lanes will connect with other efforts being completed by the city of Wilmington: a multi-use path on Hooker Road, bike lanes and sidewalks on Greenville Avenue and a multi-use path on Hinton Avenue, Kozlosky said.
Meanwhile, the city of Wilmington’s 2014 voter-approved transportation bond funds sidewalk improvements along Wrightsville Avenue. It calls for sidewalks along three separate sections: Castle Street to Independence Boulevard, Independence Boulevard to 44th Street and South College Road to Hawthorne Drive. Those improvements are slated for 2018, according to the city’s project timing plan.
