SOUTHEASTERN N.C. — The main connector into Wilmington from Brunswick County has reopened and now the state transportation agency wants input from community members to assess how its messaging was received.

A Cape Fear Memorial Bridge Preservation Project survey is asking roughly a dozen questions of area drivers. It wants to know commuter status — carpool or public transit, for example — and how motorists kept informed of the updates. There are also demographic inquiries.

Lanes were closed from the end of January until this week, as crews replaced the riding deck and stringers. It impacted multiple traffic patterns with congestion increasing throughout the city.

As such WMPO, Wave Transit and NCDOT attempted to encourage alternative travel solutions — whether walking, biking, teleworking, using RideMICRO, etc.

“We are looking to measure any effort which reduced the amount of cars on the road during high traffic hours,” the survey said.
