See, Click, Fix: Need for sidewalks in Brunswick County

Reported by Kim Ratcliff – bio |email

OAK ISLAND, NC (WECT) - An anonymous post on the See, Click, Fix page is requesting sidewalks on Oak Island Drive.

The post reads:

Need multiple crosswalks all the way down Oak Island Dr. I stop every time I see someone trying to cross the road at a corner--people will honk and try to speed around me! I don't even try to cross with my kids--to afraid of being there for 10 minutes or getting run over by someone in a rush.

According to the town manager in Oak Island, this has been brought up before but not worked out.

"I have requested that Jerry Walters (town manager)add to our December Town Council meeting, authorization from Council to approach the DOT to request they add crosswalks at several major beach access streets on Oak Island Drive and Beach Drive," said Mayor Betty Wallace.

We will keep you posted on what happens after the meeting in December.
