Cape Fear Commutes 2035 will be hosting a series of public open houses throughout the region in March and April to present our draft transportation plan for the tri-county region. This plan recommends over $2.1 billion in local-, state- and federal-funded transportation projects to be built over the next 25 years.

These open houses will run from 5:30-7:30pm. The drop-in format allows you to arrive at anytime within those two hours. The dates and locations are:

1. Tuesday, March 30, 2010: New Hanover County Senior Center: Multipurpose Room, 2222 South College Road, Wilmington, NC 28403 (accessible via WAVE Transit routes 103 Central and 202 Independence)

We will also be visiting all of the elected boards throughout the month to present the plan.

The Cape Fear Commutes 2035 Transportation Plan process included extensive public participation. Over 3,200 residents of the Cape Fear region completed the survey. Howard Loving is the co-chair of Cape Fear Commutes which serves New Hanover, Coastal Pender and the northern part of Brunswick County.

Can anyone tell me why a small Highway electronic sign was place on Carolina Beach Rd. This sigh was not cut on till late in the day and I had to pull over and watch it for ten minutes to figure out what it was saying. I live in the area and the sign was there all day but not cut on to late. Was this just a way for them to say we notified people of the meeting
