Work on Wilmington Bypass could impact 74/76 Monday


BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WWAY) -- Progress on a new stretch of the Wilmington Bypass may mean traffic delays on another highway next week.

The North Carolina Department of Transportation says Monday crews will set girders for an overpass on the new part of I-140 over US 74/76. The work zone is just west of Leland near the Leland Industrial Park.

The construction will require lane closures and possible delays from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

progress won't occur until the missing link, that this section will create, is completed. The chunk they're building now is simply a four-lane version of the existing Hwy 87 with a really nice interchange at the end of it.

Sure,close the road during

Sure,close the road during the day. Why not do this after 7 pm?

and how many years will this take five, ten years more till its done

Better hurry

Wilmington needs the skyway bridge.

Just like the port proposal in Southport, it won't go away, the powers that be have too much invested in it.
