CAROLINA BEACH - The Town of Carolina Beach is reclaiming public right-of-ways throughout Town that have been encroached up with vegetation.
According to the Town's Public Works Department, they have already started a project to cut back right of ways along the Town maintained streets. 
Their intention is not to clear cut the right of way, but to open up all line of sight issues and areas that are being over grown with vegetation.
Line-of-sight issues occur at the intersection of streets where vegetation has grown in a way that prohibits drivers from being able to see around the corner when waiting to turn onto a street. Additionally, when a vehicle is turning onto a street, pedestrians can sometimes be hidden from plain sight causing a driver to quickly swerve to avoid an accident.
The contractor hired by the Town has started work in the southern area of town, at Augusta Avenue and is working North on the East-West streets.
Cape Fear Blvd is used as a dividing line and the contractor has now shifted to the numbered, north-south streets from Cape Fear to Greenville Avenue.
Town employees are working with the contractor to address different issues as they arise. 
Progress is as follows:
• Streets: Augusta, Greenville, Spartanburg, Sumter, Columbia, Clarendon, Atlanta, Fayetteville, Hamlet. Bridge Ct. Charlotte, Third, Fourth, Fifth, Sixth, Seventh and Eighth. (Some additional mechanical cutting will take place on these streets.)
• Cubic Yards of material chipped: 120 cubic yards this week, 240 cubic yards total to date.
• Man Hours: 130 man hours this week, 320 total man hours to date.
