City spokesman, Dylan Lee said by using the $55,000,000 transportation bond, the city will have broken ground on every remaining project by 2022.

“One of the focuses of this bond is connectivity,” said Lee. “So we take places when you’re talking about bicycle and pedestrian mobility, you take places where there’s gaps and work to fill those gaps in.”

Lee says this is part of the city and planning department’s goal to make Wilmington more walkable.
