Are there any plans to open the blocked U-turn on Market Street just south of the hospital’s new emergency room?

The New Hanover Regional Medical Center’s emergency department is

part of a large development that will include medical offices and single

family homes, said Katie Hite, N.C. Department of Transportation Division 3

traffic engineer.

“The left turn lane was constructed in anticipation of this development

when U.S. 17 was widened. It is planned to be opened once the southern

access to the development is built,” Hite said.

New Hanover Regional Medical Center plans to renovate and expand its

main campus emergency department on 17th Street to accommodate an

anticipated increase in patients, hospital officials said earlier this year.
