NEW HANOVER COUNTY, NC (WECT) - Several residents are concerned about traffic on Carolina Beach Road near the Masonboro Commons shopping center.
"It is very dangerous coming out of Food Lion unless making a right - you face four corners of traffic," said Kathleen in the See, Click, Fix section of WECT.com.
"Now they have put up a McDonalds here," added JA Long. "During rush hours this has compounded a very dangerous situation. I have seen 3 near mishaps in as many days. We need a light here more than ever."
And Susan agrees, "the way they have done the turn lanes made it a "little" safer. Definitely need a light there. Some major accidents have already taken place there in the past."
A traffic signal is planned for the shopping center in conjunction with the new McDonald's restaurant.
According to the N.C. Department of Transportation, any time a development causes an impact to existing traffic it is the developer's responsibility to make improvements.
There is no word on when the traffic signal will be installed.
