Autumn Hall, Inc. and the City of Wilmington have agreed that Autumn Hall will be responsible for completing the design and construction of medians for the portion of this project between St. Mark Church and Rogersville Road, and the city will reimburse for 100 percent of the construction cost up to $1.3 million. In addition, the city is jointly funding a traffic light at the intersection of Eastwood Road and the driveway of St. Mark Church with Autumn Hall, Inc., St. Mark Church and Mayfaire II, LLC. This public-private partnership will allow this portion of the project to begin sooner.
