Why did the N.C. Department of Transportation not pave all of Village Road in Leland? Do they plan on finishing the section near Lanvale Road anytime soon?

The resurfacing of state-maintained roads is based on pavement condition surveys, said Iris McCombs, DOT Brunswick maintenance engineer.

McCombs said surveys are performed every two years.

The rating for the section of Village Road that was resurfaced was 42.

The rating for the section near Lanvale Road is 50.

McCombs said that the 42 and 50 ratings are in the mid-range priority rating on a scale of 100.

“The threshold varies due to average daily traffic, truck traffic, et cetera, and our options for pavement retreatment,” she said.

At a rating of 75 or below, “retreatment options are reviewed in order to preserve the life of the pavement,” McCombs said.

“It is our goal to resurface this section, however, the schedule is dynamic and subject to change, based on future funding levels and overall needs within the division,” she said.
