NCDOT is proposing to improve Carolina Beach Road (U.S. 421) in Wilmington through the addition of a raised, grassed median from Shipyard Boulevard to Burnett Boulevard. NCDOT is working closely with the City of Wilmington to ensure that the project meets the vision of the City’s streetscape plan in this area.
SEPI is currently contracted to provide planning, public involvement, roadway design, hydraulic and erosion control, natural environment, traffic control, and pavement marking services. The SEPI Team also provided the survey services for the project under our Survey On-Call with NCDOT. This section of Carolina Beach Road is bordered by commercial areas, historical residential neighborhoods, and fronts Legion Stadium, a 6,000-seat City of Wilmington sports facility.
SEPI is developing several alternatives to minimize impacts to the adjacent businesses and historical residential properties and is facilitating all public involvement and outreach for the project. SEPI will develop red-line drainage plans for review and include outfall analysis, Stormwater Management Plan, Geopak Drainage calculations, and ditch computations.
