Market Street public forum continues Thursday night

You still have the chance to voice concerns about traffic on one of the area's busiest roads. The second of two public forums addressing congestion, safety and general appearance of Market Street is Thursday night. The city will present it's conceptual design for Market Street. It includes adding a median from Colonial Drive to the New Hanover/Pender county border. Senior traffic planner, Mike Kozlosky said, “What we're doing is presenting those ideas to the public. We will then take that feedback we've received last night and tonight, and go back and revise the plans to go back to include the vision of the community.” Dozens of folks showed up Wednesday night to talk about planned improvements. Some of the concerns brought up included limited access to local businesses and placement of u-turns. If you would like to give your input, the meeting runs from 5:30 p.m. until 7:30 p.m. at Ogden Elementary on Middle Sound Loop Road.
