LELAND, NC (WWAY) — Leland’s mayor continues fighting the proposed project Cape Fear Skyway project. Mayor Walter Futch held a meeting at Leland Town Hall today. He spelled out all the reasons he’s against the proposed Skyway.

By 2050, Leland is expected to have a population of 100,000 people, which is nearly the size of Wilmington today. The mayor doesn’t want land locked down for the Skyway which otherwise could help Leland grow.

The billion-dollar project has its supporters. They claim the 9.5 miles of a toll road will help thin traffic into Brunswick and New Hanover Counties.
