...they have to start the usefull part of the bypass to finish it. NC-DOT, in their infinite wisdom (and with Wilmington-Metro TAC's blessing) has chosen to build the cheaper section of the I-140 bypass first. You know, the section that will span between Hwy 17 and Hwy 74-76...in other words serve the same purpose as Hwy 87. This only makes sense if you want to force the area to build the Skyway Bridge. The CRITICAL section of the bypass is not even at the stage where property is being purchased.
Take the money that the Wilmington Metro TAC wants spend to four-lane Village Rd and add additional lanes to the causeway. It's not an answer but at least it's a band-aid. Honestly, does anyone from Wilmington give a damn about Village Rd?
