The College/Oleander and Monkey Junction improvements are just cheap fixes. Basically eliminating left turns by adding lights. Not sure how that helps traffic flow faster.

Both of those intersections need the grade change bridges like the North College Rd projects, but the State doesn't want the acquisition costs associated with them in the highly commercial intersections...so they just add lights in order to make it safer and handle capacity, doing nothing to help traffic flow and to save time.

Im sure they will come back 10 years later and have proposals out to do it right.

The North College Rd projects are good projects though.

U.S. 421 Reopening

The Department of Transportation has reopened a key route to and from the Wilmington area following severe damage from Hurricane Florence. U.S. 421, which runs parallel to Interstate 40 in southeastern North Carolina, received the most damage of any state road when the storm hit in September.

Knowing the critical need to quickly restore traffic on this route, NCDOT installed a temporary bridge on one side of the road, with a single lane in each direction. This allows drivers to get through the area while planning and construction of two new bridges at the site takes place.

MANNS HARBOR - The N.C. Department of Transportation will close the William B. Umstead Bridge, locally known as the Old Manns Harbor Bridge, between 8 a.m. on Monday, Dec. 10 and 5 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 14.

During the closure, workers will be making concrete and metal repairs in order to replace an expansion joint at the eastern end of the bridge. The joint was one of two bridge joint replacements scheduled for September, but work on the second one was postponed to accommodate the Outer Banks Triathlon and Cycle Race.

While the bridge is closed, motorists will still be able to cross Croatan Sound between Roanoke Island and the Dare County mainland via the Virginia Dare Memorial Bridge.
