WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) – Building a Trader Joe’s in the empty lot on College and Oleander wouldn’t cause much more congestion, reports the StarNews.

Citing a traffic impact study done for the City of Wilmington, local intersections get level-of-service grades from A to F. The grades evaluate the level of controlled delay, with F being the longest delay.

College & Oleander gets an E right now. If Trader Joe’s builds its 13,000-square-foot store as proposed on the northeast corner, the intersection would still operate at an E.

Contractors project Trader Joe’s will open in 2014 if it gets city approval.

I was afraid that opening a 13,000 foot National chain at the busiest intersection in NC would have made traffic worse. What was I thinking.

So it’s an “E” now? And it will still be an “E” after Trader Joes opens? To me this is just an indication that Wilmington does not see a need to improve what is already a poorly controlled intersection. Instead of making improvements to the traffic, they’re only worried about revenue. Way to look out for your citizens!
