Drivers turning left onto U.S. 17 from Mount Pisgah and Ocean Isle Beach roads will have to travel a little farther to do so.
The N.C. Department of Transportation recently completed a superstreet intersection at U.S. 17 and Mount Pisgah Road, and construction is ready to begin on a similar intersection at U.S. 17 and Ocean Isle Beach Road.
For drivers wishing to turn left or go straight through these intersections, they must first turn right, and then make a U-turn.
Allen Pope, NCDOT Div. 3 engineer, said the two intersections qualified for spot safety funding.
