Overview: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.
