When you count turn lanes that road is 10 lanes wide. If you delay traffic THAT long even with pedestrians running across it - you would get some drivers pretty mad.
As for people NOT using it?
Thats easy. Put a UNCW cop at the base of it on the UNCW side. Ticket anyone crossing the road and not using the elevated crosswalk.
They could also use one at NH Regional as many employees are parking across the street now.
