Q. Why is there no crosswalk or crosswalk signal at Oleander and College? Trader Joes did not even add a sidewalk to the curb, so I am guessing pedestrians are encouraged to cross elsewhere.
A. Adding a crosswalk is not Trader Joes’ responsibility, said Mike Kozlosky, executive director of the Wilmington Metropolitan Planning Organization.
Kozlosky said the MPO and N.C. DOT are planning to add a crosswalk to the intersection as part of the next resurfacing project.
Trader Joe’s did add a sidewalk bordering both the College and Oleander sides of its parking lot.
