Are more trees going to be planted in the new Market Street median?

Ken Little

Q. When the North Market Street/Porters Neck road widening project was being laid out, the public was pitched the plan of a tree-lined median. So far, there have only been a handful planted. Are more slated to be installed?

A. All trees in the ongoing Market Street project have been planted, said Brian Rick, N.C. Department of Transportation spokesman.

“At this time, there is no more landscaping planned for the median on Market Street,” Rick said.

Landscaping at the Porter’s Neck intersection and roundabout on Porter’s Neck Road is still planned, Rick said.


Was the Market Street repaving near Porters Neck stalled?

What is that large pipe along Burnt Mill Creek between Market Street and Princess Place Drive?

    They are spending a whole lot of money on 3rd st and letting the Crepe Myrtles on College Road become an eyesore and making it difficult to find a store behind them especially if you are new here.

    When i first came to Wilmington almost 11 yrs ago I thought how pretty college road was during June and July now it just looks a mess. Not a good first impression of our much loved Town. Please resume trimming them back every year and make our town pretty again.
