Met with the NCDOT to coordinate efforts for the Carolina Beach Road streetscape project. Currently working to integrate with their project.
North Front Street Streetscape
A complete overhaul of the streetscape, including new pavement, sidewalks, the addition of new landscaping and benches, as well as improved pedestrian facilities in this busy portion of Front street near CFCC. This will be similar to the streetscape improvements that have already occurred along South Front Street and North 3rd Street.
Carolina Beach Road Streetscape
Aesthetic improvements such as a landscaped median, planters, benches, and pedestrian upgrades along this heavily travelled road and southern gateway into Wilmington. This will be similar to the streetscape improvements that have already occurred along South Front Street and North 3rd Street.
- Maximizes use of public dollars by complementing and expanding upon existing sidewalks
- Provides walking as another way to reach commercial areas, getting cars off congested roads
- Addresses one of the top priorities identified from citizens in neighborhood meetings held around the city earlier this year as part of city’s effort to develop long-term plan for growth
- Provide improvements that will make the city’s primary gateway on Dawson and Wooster streets more attractive
