Work zone traffic sign

UPDATE: A planned closure of an off-ramp of the Cape Fear Memorial Bridge scheduled to start Friday, March 13, has been canceled due to potential weather conflicts. An accompanying closure in the 1100 block of South Front Street has also been canceled. 

The traffic advisory and manhole installation will be rescheduled at a later date. 

ORIGINAL MESSAGE: The southbound Front Street off-ramp of the Cape Fear Memorial Bridge will be closed the weekend of March 13 while a contractor for CFPUA installs a manhole in the area.

Starting at 9 p.m. Friday, March 13, crews will close the southbound off-ramp of the Cape Fear Memorial Bridge. The southbound lane of South Front Street will also be closed between Meares and Marstellar streets. The ramp and road are scheduled to re-open at 4 a.m. Monday, March 16.

The closures will allow a CFPUA contractor to install a manhole near the intersection of South Front and Marstellar streets. Message boards will be placed in the area ahead of the closures to alert drivers.

Northbound traffic on South Front Street is not expected to be impacted. Traffic coming into Wilmington via the bridge will be detoured onto South Third Street.
