This project combines three voter-approved 2014 Transportation bond Project that are all located along the Wrightsville Avenue corridor. The combined project consists of a new roundabout at Wallace Avenue and a continuous sidewalk along the North side of Wrightsville Avenue from Independence Blvd. to Hawthorne Drive- approx. 2.6 miles.


The roundabout will improve traffic flow along Wrightsville where it backs up just east of College Road.

The sidewalks will provide safe pedestrian connections between multiple neighborhoods, shopping areas, UNCW, the Cross-City Trail, and the River-to-Sea bike route.

Design on this project is 75% complete and city staff is reaching out to property owners about securing necessary easements and/or land purchases to complete the project. In addition, a complete tree survey has been conducted to ensure that all healthy trees that can be saved are saved.  The following priorities have guided the planning and design.

  • Provide safe pedestrian connections.
  • Minimize right-of-way acquisition.
  • Minimize impacts to existing utilities.
  • Avoid and preserve existing trees to the extent possible.
