What You Need to Know about the Brunswick ByPass, Skyway Bridge and Other Transportation Project and Issues

Today's Wilmington Star-News published a comprehensive look at local transportation issues, specifically the Skyway Bridge Project and the Brunswick Bypass

Having recently returned from a trip to Connecticut and back, dealing with heavy traffic pretty constantly from Richmond to Hartford, the local traffic issue can seem minor by comparison. When taken in context of growth projections (Leland to reach 100,000 population by 2020-2025!) and the added demand caused not just by population increase but also increased traffic to and from the existing Port of Wilmington and the "proposed" North Carolina International Port, however, we as a state and region will fare much better with foresight and action now rather than waiting for the growth and anticipated congestion and then wringing our hands and pointing fingers at officials who "shoulda done better."

If you're at all involved with or invested in the future economic health and continued quality of life in southeastern North Carolina, now is the time to direct your attention to transporation issues and projects.

Action Step: Contact your state, county, and local legislators and let them know you think the improvements and advanced time schedules are imperative.
