All-American Expressway Detour

(Fayetteville, N.C.) – Fayetteville citizens and motorists are advised of scheduled construction that will affect drivers who use the All-American Expressway to enter Fort Bragg during the overnight hours from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. Starting Friday, April 11, traffic along the northbound All-American Expressway, between Santa Fe Drive and Fort Bragg’s Access Control Point, will be closed while contractors work on the I-295 Outer Loop Bridge that will carry traffic over the All-American Expressway. The construction is expected to detour traffic until early in the morning on Monday, April 13.

While the section of the All-American Expressway is closed, the All-American Access Control Point will be the only Access Control Point closed by the detour. During this time period, Department of Defense (DOD) card holders will still have normal weekend access to Fort Bragg from the other Access Control Points. Drivers without a DOD card can access Fort Bragg by going to the Access Control Point located at Randolph Street, where they will receive a pass after processing. 

Other portions of the All-American Expressway, including the southbound lanes at the construction site, will not be affected by the construction detour.

Cigarette Litter Prevention Month

(Fayetteville, N.C.) – The City of Fayetteville is partnering with Fayetteville Beautiful to curb the amount of cigarette butts that litter the roadside and wash into our storm drains. Declaring the month of April as “Cigarette Litter Prevention Month,” the City has created an awareness campaign with a website, billboards and 30 second PSAs to air on FayTV7 and the Internet. The campaign will culminate during the week of the Dogwood Festival with digital billboards displayed for free by Lamar Advertising. In addition, Fayetteville Beautiful will have a table at the City’s tent during the Dogwood Festival to help educate the public about the effects cigarette litter can have on the environment. Residents wishing to participate in Fayetteville Beautiful’s Citywide Cleanup on May 3rd can sign up via an interactive map at http://fcpr.us/fayettevillebeautiful/.

Cigarettes are an unsightly form of litter that not only decrease property values, but also can leach toxic chemicals into area streams and rivers. Cigarette butts are designed to trap the chemicals found in cigarette smoke such as arsenic, benzene and formaldehyde.

The following are a few facts provided by Keep America Beautiful:

  • The overall littering rate for cigarette butts is 65%, and tobacco products comprise 38% of all U.S. roadway litter
  • 32% of litter at storm drains is tobacco products
  • The presence of litter in a community decreases property values by a little over 7%
  • Tobacco litter represents nearly 32% of all litter in outdoor recreation areas
  • It’s the number one most littered item anywhere. Increasing amounts of litter in a business district, along riverfronts or recreation areas create a sense that no one cares, leading to more community disorder and crime
  • About 95% of cigarette filters are composed of cellulose acetate, a form of plastic which does not quickly degrade and can persist in the environment. Cigar tips, too, are predominantly plastic
  • A survey of over 1,000 smokers found that 35% toss five or more cigarette butts per pack on the ground

The City of Fayetteville is asking smokers to take a moment and properly dispose of their cigarettes in ashtrays and smoking bins instead of throwing cigarette butts out their window or emptying ashtrays on City streets. It only takes a moment to be stewards of the environment and help the City become a desirable place to live and visit.
