FROM NCDOT: Cape Fear Memorial Bridge Weekend Closures Planned


WILMINGTON – The Cape Fear Memorial Bridge in Wilmington will be closed two of the next three weekends for maintenance work. The closure covers both east and westbound lanes.

The closure will be in effect the weekends of Oct. 26-28, and again Nov. 9-11. It will be from 9 p.m. on Friday until 5 a.m. the following Monday both weekends. The schedule is weather conditional.

During the closure, a contractor will be working on the bridge and the areas approaching it to extend the life of the structure and reduce the need for future maintenance.

A signed detour route will be in place. Drivers need to slow down and be cautious when approaching the bridge, and anticipate needing extra time while using the detour route.
