NCDOT: Closures begin Sunday on Cape Fear Memorial Bridge


Overnight Wilmington Bridge Closures for Annual Inspections

Closures begin Sunday on Cape Fear Memorial Bridge

For immediate release

Date: Sept. 26, 2019

Contact: Lauren Haviland / / (919) 707-2677

WILMINGTON – As part of the N.C. Department of Transportation’s annual bridge inspection, a Wilmington bridge will close for up to four nights in a row beginning Sunday.

On Sept. 29, the Cape Fear Memorial Bridge will close at 9 p.m. and reopen the following day at 5 a.m. The bridge will close again Monday night and reopen Tuesday morning at the same times. Additionally, the nights of Tuesday and Wednesday will have possible closures of the same duration if inclement weather hinders the inspection or if repairs require additional time. In any case, all closures will end by 5 a.m. on Oct. 3.

The closures will allow NCDOT’s Bridge Maintenance Electrical Department and the New Hanover Bridge Maintenance Department to do an annual inspection of the aerial cable installation. This inspection is done to identify potential problems and ensure cables will remain functional and in good repair for the duration of their life expectancy. The aerial cable strapping utilizes strips of rubber as insulating material to prevent damage from the straps themselves. These must be replaced or inspected every year due to the deterioration of the material.

These must be replaced or inspected every year due to the deterioration of the material.

Detour signs will be posted, directing traffic around the closure. Drivers should anticipate needing extra time for their commute during these nights. Motorists are also urged to use caution when approaching the work zone.
