North Carolina Department of Transportation has provided an updated timeline for the Cape Fear Memorial Bridge repairs.

The NCDOT says the timeline is still subject to change:

  • January 11: The contractor will start temporary lane closures on the outside lines in both directions from 7 p.m. to 5 a.m. to let build a work platform and make other preparations. The closure will then shift to the inside lanes to build a barrier wall, and the outside lanes will be open.
  • January 28: Both lanes heading into Wilmington will be closed. Crews will be working during the day.
  • March 31: Inbound lane repairs complete, ideally in time for the Azalea Festival.
  • April 9: Both lanes heading out of Wilmington will be closed.
  • May 23: Repairs are scheduled to be complete.
