Wilmington Riverwalk to get repairs


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- Wilmington's downtown Riverwalk is undergoing construction for the next four months as part of the city's five-year infrastructure improvement plan.

Crews will replace or repair 58 beams underneath the walkway. Because most of the work is taking place in the water, workers are specially trained in doing underwater repairs.

Repairs will also be made to the observation deck at the intersection of Water and Market streets.

Its nice that the city is maintaining the river walk but why would they wait to do construction in the peak of tourist season?


I get your point and agree but was just thinking about the current condition of the river walk. Could be it is too dangerous to "support" the traffic of peak tourist season and needs to be addressed now? **shrug**


The Riverwalk is a very important part of Wilmington, and attracts tourists. But the lack of adequate restroom facilities along the walk is pathetic. Mayor Saffo indicated this problem would be addressed about 7 years ago, but nothing ever happened.

You have nothing to worry about!

If Mayor $affo said it will be addressed it will be addressed. $affo would never tell an untruth. His last campaign for Mayor proves that; not one untruth that he can even recall exactly.

I know it's been seven years or so but he's probably just looking for an honest contractor that he can feel comfortable doing business with. Sometimes, it takes a long time to find a really "honest" one. One he can really count on to "do the right thing".

What? No restrooms on River walk?

You needn't worry about needing a 'Loo
When the mighty Cape Fear is right near you!!

Heck it's already loaded with pig waste.......
You gotta do the Cape Fear River breast stroke when swimming across it otherwise you'll be ingesting God knows what.....
