Leland looking at reprioritizing road projects

Monday, March 18th, 2013

LELAND, NC (WWAY) — Leland is changing its priorities on the road. At this week’s town council meeting, leaders will consider a series of resolutions that would push for changes.

The long-discussed Cape Fear Skyway and widening Village Road are currently priorities, but Leland leaders want to focus on other projects.

For starters, they want the Skyway and its projected $2 billion price tag removed from state statute.

“Just the volume of projects that could be done with that money kind of outweighs the benefit of it,” Leland Town Manager David Hollis said.

Not everyone on along the river agrees. Many people think there needs to be another way across the Cape Fear.

“I don’t go along with it being stopped,” said Jimmy Powell, a Southport resident. “I think it should move forward.”

While town leaders are looking to put a red light on the Skyway for now, they also want to stop the widening of Village Road. They want to change their priority to add an interchange at Old Fayetteville Road and US 74/76, which would give drivers another option to get on and off the highway. Leaders think this will help alleviate traffic in the area.

“A lot of that traffic that has to go around town and through town a lot to get to the schools will now be able to get on and off the four lanes at that interchange,” Hollis said.

Town Council will discuss the transportation priorities during during their meeting Thursday at 7 p.m. at Town Hall.
