What is the route of the proposed Cape Fear Skyway bridge?

Patrick Gannon

Potentially, 100 properties in New Hanover County and 36 in Brunswick County will have to be purchased for construction of the Cape Fear Skyway.

Owners of those parcels may soon be prohibited from developing them, but it may be years before the state has the money to buy the land.

Transportation officials released a map in August 2010 showing properties that fall in the route of the proposed 9.5-mile toll road, which includes a high-rise bridge over the Cape Fear River south of the Port of Wilmington.

    All well & good that there is a map(s) of the proposed Skyway. But for most, it is very difficult to discerne what property(s) it passes thru/affects in Brunswwick County, because it is technical and narrowly portrayed. Why don’t you put it a perspective all can understand and show it’s proposed route as an overlay on a county or local map?
    Thank you
