Why repave Gordon Road now when it’s slated to be widened in the future?

Ken Little

Q. Why is Gordon Road between North College and Market Street being repaved now without the rewidening project that is slated by DOT?

A. The limits of the widening project for Gordon Road are from are from Wood Sorrell Road to the multilane section at the I-40 interchange.

“The project’s scope is to widen Gordon Road to a three-lane section,” said Patrick Riddle, N.C. Department of Transportation project manager.

“Currently, the project is unfunded and will be prioritized in Prioritization 3.0, which is part of the Governor’s Strategic Transportation Investment plan,” Riddle said.

The DOT and Wilmington Urban Area Metropolitan Planning Organization will assign points to projects at that prioritization level this summer, and a new state transportation improvement program will be approved before October 2015.

“Due to this schedule, the Division (3) moved forward with the minor widening and resurfacing of Gordon Road,” Riddle said.


Why haven’t workers returned to the Gordon Road re-pavement project to finish their work?

Why did the DOT cut a yard-wide swath of road across all lanes of 74/76 in Brunswick County?

Why is there no median cut on Randall Parkway at the State Employees Credit Union?
