Jacksonville Seeks Public Input For Improvements To Lejeune Boulevard

There are many traffic headaches across Eastern Carolina and officials in Jacksonville are asking for input from drivers to find a solution to a big problem there.

Traffic is often bumper to bumper and can be dangerous on Lejeune Boulevard in Onslow County, especially near the main gate to the base as people head to work. And these days it's even more congested as crews work on the main gate's canopy over the next four months.

In the past three years there were 863 crashes on Lejeune Boulevard and nearly a quarter resulted in injuries on the road that sees 54,000 vehicles per day.

Anthony Prinz, a planning administrator with the city says, "Involving the community is a fundamental part of the planning process so we want to make sure that what we come up with in this plan is addressing the specific community needs out there."

The goal of the study is to look at both land use and transporation on the corridor between Bell Fork Road and Piney Green Road.

Anyone interested in offering possible solutions can attend the drop-in symposium meeting April 20th at 5:30 pm at the Jacksonville Youth Center.

    Thought they were planning another gate/entrance for Lejeune along with another roadway to help handle the congestion.

    The building are ugly and unfriendly looking. Take away all the tattoo parlors and sex stores off the the main roads. TACKY! Remove so much PAVEMENT! Add more trees and anything GREEN!
