DOT looking for input on Skyway project


BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WWAY) -- The state Department of Transportation wants to know what you think about the the Cape Fear Skyway project.

The DOT is hosting a citizen's informational meeting at Belville Elementary School in Leland tonight from 5 to 8 p.m. It is an opportunity for you to voice any questions or concerns about the proposed bridge between Brunswick and New Hanover Counties.

The bridge has garnered mixed reactions from folks across the area. Some say the bridge would drastically improve traffic in and out of Wilmington.

"We need the third access to the southern part of Wilmington," David Pulley of Leland said. "It would make things a lot easier for people on that side of town, plus access from Leland also."

If you cannot make tonight's meeting, there is another Thursday in Wilmington. It is from 5 to 8 p.m. at Alderman Elementary school at 2025 Independence Blvd.

The workshops are open to the public, and anyone interested in finding out more about the project is encouraged to attend.
