WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — As of May 9, all lanes are now open on the Cape Fear Memorial Bridge.

The Wilmington Urban Area Metropolitan Planning Organization has released a short survey to discover how travel behavior changed during the maintenance project, which began in January.

In a press release, The WMPO says it has worked with area employers and its members to promote information and support for alternative transportation strategies to reduce traffic congestion during the project.

The WMPO also says it partnered with Wave Transit and NCDOT on providing expanded RideMICRO service in northern Brunswick County for connection to downtown Wilmington, as well as a marketing campaign to promote alternative transportation strategies to offset traffic congestion, which included carpooling, teleworking and alternative work schedules, public transit, bicycling, and walking.

The WMPO would like to assess the impact of marketing and supporting these strategies during the Cape Fear Memorial Bridge preservation project to better understand how the effort was received and utilized by the public, and to inform future transportation marketing strategies.

The survey will be available through May 24.
