WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- It looks like the North Carolina Department of Transportation will pick up the tab for a project that could help ease traffic at one of Wilmington's busiest intersections.
The Consent Agenda for tomorrow night's Wilmington City Council meeting includes a resolution for the DOT to add a right turn lane from westbound Oleander Drive to S. College Road in front of Trader Joe's. The DOT will build the turn lane as part of a project to repave S. College Road between Shipyard Blvd. and Wilshire Blvd. this year, according to a draft of the agreement in Council's agenda packet.
The new turn lane will not cost the City of Wilmington any money.
No word on when construction would begin if City Council approves the project.
