WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- Drivers on the northeast side of Wilmington can expect some detours and delays on the roads this week.
Because of rain last week, the city says a portion of Cardinal Drive, between Market Street and Eastwood Road, will remain closed to through traffic until Thursday while crews install drainage pipes under the road. The street was originally scheduled to reopen this past Friday.
Residents of Long Leaf Acres and Inland Greens continue to have access to their neighborhoods either from Market Street or Eastwood Road. The stormwater improvement project currently underway will connect with the existing drainage system adjacent to the Port City Community Church and help alleviate flooding in the Inland Greens neighborhood.
Meanwhile, the NCDOT will close lanes on Military Cutoff and Eastwood roads overnight all week.
Lane closures are expected on Military Cutoff Road from Viking Lane to Eastwood Road from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. for repaving and signal detector replacement.
Lane closures are expected on Eastwood Road from east of Cavalier Drive to Pavilion Plaza from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. for repaving and signal detector replacement.
