A study is underway to consider solutions for a problem traffic area near Camp Lejeune.
A drop-in discussion session will be held Wednesday, April 20, from 5:30 to 7 p.m. for anyone who has an interest in improving the portion of Lejeune Boulevard/NC 24 between Bell Fork Road and Piney Green Road. Those interested can come at any time to the meeting held at Jacksonville Youth Council's Youth Center at 804 New Bridge Street, right across from City Hall.
Crashes and congestion are nothing new to Lejeune Boulevard near the Camp Lejeune main gate. During a three year period 863 crashes were recorded with nearly a quarter resulting in injuries. Combined with a traffic count of 54,000 vehicles per day, and the need for solutions becomes clear.
Much work has already been done and now public comments are being sought on sustainable ways to enhance safety, reduce congestion and improve aesthetics to this important gateway for Jacksonville and Camp Lejeune.
