Leland waiting on developer to put signs up at ‘dangerous’ intersection

Tuesday, April 23rd, 2013

LELAND, NC (WWAY) — Leland’s town manager says an intersection near a new park is dangerous, but he says fixing the problem is out of the town’s hands.

The intersection of Westgate Drive and Oceangate Drive has no stop, yield or speed limit signs. It has town leaders and visitors to the new Westgate Nature Park concerned, including one man who says he almost got into an accident there.

“(The other driver) almost T-boned us,” Timothy Enfinger said of the near crash a couple weeks ago. “He actually had two children in his backseat, and I literally saw their heads come forward real hard and then bounce back.”

Enfinger says folks that live in the area say there has been no stop sign for months.

Leland Town Manager David Hollis says there should be a stop sign there.

“People may not stop. They may just take the curve and keep on going, but it’s important to have the stop sign there, and we’re trying to make the necessary contacts to get it put up,” Hollis said.

Over the past couple of months traffic has increased on the road from the park being built and the addition of an apartment complex.

“I would encourage people to yield to the right away to the through traffic,” Hollis said.

Hollis says the streets are privately owned by Nathan Sanders, the developer of Westgate subdivision. Hollis says Sanders is responsible for traffic signs there. Despite the town letting Sanders know about the problem, two weeks later there are still no signs up.

We called and e-mail Sanders today, but he has not gotten back to us.

Hollis says the town does not want to have to put up the signs at taxpayer expense, because that would set a precedent of paying for what is the developer’s responsibility.
