WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- Drivers won't be able to turn left near the Wrightsville Beach Drawbridge for a while.

The North Carolina Department of Transportation has agreed to restrict left turns to and from Airlie Road beginning this week.

The Wilmington Metropolitan Planning Organization and the Town of Wrightsville Beach requested the restrictions to improve traffic flow near the drawbridge until all four lanes are open to traffic.

Work on the bridge is expected to wind down in April.
