Q. Why wasn’t the superstreet configuration extended from Autumn Hall past St. Mark Catholic Church to prohibit left turns on Eastwood Road?

After reading the complaints about constant stopping of traffic on Eastwood during school and church hours and the hiring of public safety officers to direct traffic, either a signal or median would be the better choice.  Does the NCDOT have a plan for this area since it is only going to get worse as the church continues to grow?

A. The answer, from Mike Kozlosky, the executive director of the Wilmington Urban Area Metropolitan Planning Authority:

The Wilmington MPO’s Transportation Advisory Committee adopted a preferred access plan for Eastwood Road on March 30, 2011. This preferred access plan outlines the long-term vision for Eastwood Road from Market Street to Wrightsville Avenue that includes a non-traversable median with traffic signals, directional left-overs and U-turn movements at designated locations along the corridor.

The median exists between Cardinal Drive to Bretonshire Road.  The Transportation Impact Analysis approval memorandum for Autumn Hall requires the installation of this median from Cardinal Drive to Rogersville Road and this installation is being completed in phases as development progresses within Autumn Hall.
