CAROLINA BEACH, NC (WWAY) -- Drivers trying to get to and from Pleasure Island should soon get a break from backed-up traffic.
The NCDOT says all four lanes on Snow's Cut Bridge should be back open by this weekend.
DOT engineer Ben Hughes says the agency is pushing the contractor to finish repairs on the southbound lanes of the bridge. That work has forced the lanes heading into Carolina Beach to be closed for months. That's led to just one lane in each direction across the bridge, which has sometimes led to long traffic delays.
Hughes says once the work wraps up, crews will not be allowed back on the bridge to do rehabilitation work on the northbound lanes until after Oct. 1.
