Plans Expand for Traffic-Packed Neighborhood

JULY 11, 2005 -- The New Hanover County Commissioners considered putting a hold on large scale development along Market Street in the Ogden and Porter's Neck area. They were planning to wait until the outer loop was completed next year.

However, they voted down that idea Monday night.

Instead the commissioners agreed to work with the North Carolina State DOT on a land use and transportation plan.

Meanwhile, they say they will now take a much closer look at the traffic impact of future developments in the area.

The DOT also announced it will spend more than $9 million on improvements to Market Street in the coming months.
