Changes could be coming for intersection at Oleander and College

READ MORE: Changes could be coming for intersection at Oleander and College
The intersection at Oleander Drive and College Road is one of the busiest in Wilmington. The Department of Transportation plans to make big changes to reduce the congestion, but not everyone is happy with their solution. A public hearing will take place tomorrow afternoon to gather feedback for proposed improvements to the intersection of US-76 and North Carolina 132. The plan, better known as the Quadrant Design, would include a ban on left hand turns and force drivers who do want to make a left to use a different intersection. Some residents and business owners think there are a few problems with the design. Local business owner Alvin Rogers said, "Tourists won't have a clue. People that get used to this will cut through neighborhoods to avoid this intersection if they're making left turns." If you are interested in speaking with North Carolina DOT officials about the project plans, the hearing will take place tomorrow night at Roland Grise Middle School from 4:30 p.m. until 6:30 p.m.. A formal presentation will follow at 7:00 p.m.
