Project Summary

NCDOT, U-5734 Front Street Feasibility Study

Wilmington, NC

SEPI is responsible for planning, environmental, and engineering services related to the preparation of a feasibility study for the widening of South Front Street in Wilmington, NC. The project proposes to widen South Front Street from two-lanes to four-lanes divided with median, turn lanes, multi-use path, and sidewalk from the Cape Fear Memorial Bridge to Burnett Boulevard. SEPI will conduct background research to identify project constraints including, but not limited to, environmental/natural resources, railroads, hazardous materials, cultural/historic, social, coastal regulations, utilities, and outreach to state and federal agencies to solicit comments on the project. The constraints will be taken into consideration in the development of design criteria and conceptual designs for the roadway. As part of the feasibility study, traffic studies will also be completed. Traffic studies will include accident analysis, no-build capacity analysis, and build capacity analysis. Preliminary functional designs will be developed based on traffic data and constraints. Construction and right-of-way cost estimates and a benefit cost analysis will be completed for the functional designs. Alternatives will be evaluated and incorporated into the final feasibility report deliverable.
