WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — New lighting has been unveiled for Wilmington’s Kenan Fountain.
The enhanced lighting was installed to better illuminate the intersection at 5th Avenue and Market Street.
New traffic and pedestrian signals were also added. Both traffic and pedestrian signals will remain red between 11 p.m. and 6 a.m. until a vehicle approaches the intersection or a pedestrian presses the “Walk” button.
The red light will cause cars to slow down as they approach the intersection and is expected to lower the probability of cars hitting the fountain.
The project was a joint effort with NCDOT.
