LELAND, NC (WECT) - The no U-turn signs have been missing at the corner of Highway 17 and Ploof Road near the entrance to the Waterford Subdivision in Leland.
Someone posted the issue on the See, Click, Fix section of WECT.com saying:
There are some no U-turn signs missing that is creating a traffic hazard. Everyday there are drivers making a U-turn to go back North at that intersection almost colliding with traffic that has the right of way by way of the green light. Large trucks also make U-turns there. This intersection is not designed for U-turns for large trucks let alone passenger vehicles. It is designed to make left hand turns only. It would be greatly appreciated if this matter is looked into in a timely manner before an accident occurs.
According to the Brunswick County Department of Transportation, this issue has been fixed.
