Road block for Skyway Bridge

The proposed Skyway Bridge to connect southern Brunswick and New Hanover County has met a potential road block. Last month, the Department of Transportation held a meeting to discuss options for the bridge. Thursday, Leland Town Council voted unanimously to delay support of the Cape Fear Skyway. Mayor Walter Futch said he needs more information before approving any of the plans. “I need to hear what Plan B is. If they can't build the Skyway how are they going to handle the traffic? And if that proposal is to handle the traffic some different way, what would that cost? How efficient would that be? Would it really handle it?” Leland residents are worried one of the plans for the Skyway could divide neighborhoods and prevent home construction.
