Isabel Holmes bridge closed Tuesday night


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- The North Carolina Department of Transportation will temporarily close the Isabel Holmes Bridge in Wilmington to all traffic beginning at 8 p.m. Tuesday. The bridge is scheduled to reopen Wednesday at 5 a.m. The closure is necessary for mechanical repair work.

The bridge carries traffic from highways 74/17/76 across the Cape Fear River. Travelers in the area will follow signed detours to avoid the closure.

The Cape Fear Memorial Bridge will have one lane closed during the day through Thursday. That lane closure will not be at the same time as the Isabel Holmes Bridge closure.
