See, Click, Fix: Traffic signal on Market Street questioned

Reported by Kim Ratcliff – bio |email

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - A traffic signal stands at the intersection of Market Street and Princess Place Drive, but Princess Place Drive has turned into a dead end and viewers wrote into See, Click, Fix asking why the light is still in place.

Several years ago you used to be able to come out of the shopping center at Market Street and cross the road to get onto Princess Place Drive. But changes to Princess Place Drive have made that impossible, and it now dead ends and there is a barricade set up.

The North Carolina Department of Transportation calls this the 'Elizabeth's Pizza signal' and relied on the Market Street Corridor Study and the Kerr Avenue Study to decide whether to make any revisions to the signal.

There is a plan to remove the signal with another project called the Market Street Median Island Placement. The signal maybe relocated at Cinema Drive, but is still under review.

So the problem will be fixed the question is when? Check back for future updates.
