Why is there not a traffic light at Enterprise Drive and U.S. 74/76 in Leland?

Ken Little

Currently, the intersection of Enterprise Drive and U.S. 74/76 does not meet any of the warrants addressed in the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices for a signal to be installed, said Joseph Chance, deputy division traffic engineer with the N.C. Department of Transportation.

“There are plans for future development within the industrial/residential community and the department has been in discussion with the developer about the additional traffic that will be generated,” Chance said. “When and if this development begins the department will insist on a treatment for the intersection if warrants are met.”

Chance said the developer will do a traffic impact study “and the department will use this along with current traffic information to decide what the applicable treatment will be.”

Chance said “treatments” can be signals, designated left turns or a superstreet design similar to the one in the U.S. 17-Waterford area.

    Anything other than those stupid “superstreets”.

    I seriously doubt there will ever be traffic light at that intersection. Windsor Park is mostly completed and the traffic right now isn’t that bad. Once they complete the entrance to the neighborhood from mercantile drive there will really be no need. You can already take Trade street to Mercantile and from there get on Mt. Misery to get on 74/76 via the ramp.

    Also, the possibility of I-74 running down the 74/76 corridor is still real. If this happens then the intersection will be eliminated entirely.
