WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Road work will keep a Wilmington street closed through the weekend. Crews were scheduled to close Chestnut Street between 3rd and 4th Street starting at 7 a.m. The closure is expected to last through the end of the day Monday.
The city says traffic on Chestnut east of 3rd Street will not be able to access 3rd Street, and traffic on 3rd Street will not be able to turn east onto Chestnut Street.
The road is closed so crews can replace a manhole in the street. Crews will work Saturday. They plan to have traffic back to normal Monday night.
The block of Chestnut between 3rd and 4th will be open for local traffic only. Driveways into 305 Chestnut and the City Hall parking lot will be accessible.
