With construction beginning on the new elementary school, are there plans to build a sidewalk along Porters Neck Road? Also, is there a plan to lower the speed limit on Porters Neck Road?

The district will build a sidewalk in front of the school, but it will not

extend to the entire area of Porters Neck Road, said Valita Quattlebaum,

spokeswoman for New Hanover County Schools.

“There are no plans to lower the 45 mph speed limit on Porters Neck Road

at this time. The school is proposed to be built on Edgewater Club Road.  I

am not aware of any plans (relating to) the sidewalk,” said Katie Hite,

Department of Transportation Division 3 traffic engineer.

Quattlebaum said the speed limit will be lowered in front of the school.

The school system can request a lower school zone speed limit once the new school gets closer to opening, Hite said.
