Are there plans to change Blair School Road now that school traffic is being redirected?

Ken Little

Q. Are there plans to widen Blair School Road from Market Street to Blair and Noble schools with the current construction going on now to keep school traffic out of the Green Meadows neighborhood? Residents are upset with the speeding and congestion we have to deal with now and want the school traffic to use the road that was made for the schools.

A. Because the plans for Blair School replacement did not expand or increase the number of students being served by the new facility, no improvements to Blair School Road were required as no additional traffic is being generated, according to Don Bennett, traffic engineer in the City of Wilmington’s Department of Planning, Development and Transportation.

“When a site or facility increases its traffic we do bring all accesses up to current standards during the development review process. Revisions were made to the internal site plan that will accommodate more queuing on site,” Bennett said.
