Work on this project is anticipated to be substantially complete in mid-December. The City would like to thank all of those impacted by this project for their patience during the construction. Now that it is wrapping up, motorists, pedestrians and bicyclists will enjoy this newly revamped corridor in midtown Wilmington.
There will be a completion ceremony on Wednesday, December 18 at 10:00 am at Anne McRary Park, on the East end of Randall Pond.
The Randall Parkway widening project, when complete in mid-December, will alleviate heavy traffic in the vicinity of Kerr Avenue and College Road and add capacity for future traffic growth along the entire parkway. The project will also extend the Cross City Trail from just past the Randall pond bridge to Marlboro Drive - and add bike lanes on both sides of the road between Collegiate Drive and College road.. The middle section of Randall, from Marlboro Drive, across Kerr Ave, and up to Collegiate Drive, will get the cross city trail when the NC DOT does the Kerr Avenue widening project in 2015. About half of the Randall project’s $6 million budget comes from federal and state monies with most of the remaining funding coming from the 2006 voter-approved transportation bond.
Thank you for your patience as we work to improve traffic on this important corridor. For project information, call city engineering at 341-7807.
