WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — The paving of North 3rd Street is finally over. Now that the paving is complete, crews are finishing the installation of decorative crosswalks, pavement markings and the removal of old utility poles.

The first block of the project, between Market and Princess Street will open to full width next week with the opening of lanes that are slate to move north along 3rd Street over the next several weeks

    The whole family went (early-early) this morning before the chickens woke up, to see this incredible 8th Wonder of the World, while still in our PJ’s! Was hoping to see the very first car wreck on it, but we dozed off.
    All of these major cities “USA” with their subways-freeways-byways-skyscrapers have nothing on us now here in Wilmington.
    We should expect Time Magazine any day now to arrive!
    In all seriousness people, it’s amazing Wilmington finally laid some asphalt down to curtail having to use a 4 Wheel Drive Vehicle to handle the bumps and cracks that existed before!
    One down, hundreds of streets more to go.

    They are done? Did someone forget to tell them, they forgot to pave the bridge near Uhaul?
