N. Front St. reopens to vehicles, free parking remains through January

WILMINGTON — Following an extensive streetscape project on North Front Street, both blocks are now open to the public — vehicles and pedestrians.

The city announced Wednesday that barricades were coming down around noon and streets were reopening, after landscaping and street cleaning wrapped.

The parking meters on the 200 and 300 blocks of North Front have not been installed. City spokesperson Dylan Lee said he anticipates them arriving in February. In the meantime, spots are free, but a strict two-hour time limit is being enforced between 9 a.m. and 6:30 p.m.

According to internal emails obtained by Port City Daily, punch list items, concrete repair work and the final street light circuitry, still needs to be completed.

The North Front Street Streetscape has been an ongoing project, in conjunction with Cape Fear Public Utility Authority, to replace aging pipelines. It was delayed multiple times due to supply-chain issues.

Work finally began in April, with the first phase opening in October. Crews then moved from the 200 to 300 block.

The project was supposed to be wrapped initially by September ahead of the holiday season.
