Why were ‘no-parking’ signs added on Airlie Road?

Amy Hotz

The new “no-parking” signs near the 90-degree curve on Airlie Road were put there by the city of Wilmington after complaints about cars parked between the road and the Intracoastal Waterway.

Malissa Talbert, city spokesperson, said that after the complaint was received, city representatives investigated the situation and found that vehicles parked in some spots along the right-of-way were obstructing drivers’ line of sight. That’s when the signs were erected.

“We did not put them up all over, arbitrarily,” Talbert said.

She also said that this is a residential area with no public access to the waterway. So, no fishing or launching has ever been permitted there unless you own property down to the water.
