WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Cape Fear Public Utility Authority workers discovered a hazard this afternoon while repairing a sinking manhole at the intersection of South Kerr and Maple Avenue.
The emergency repair contractors found a collapsed storm drain. Because of this, all lanes of South Kerr Avenue will be closed between Cedar Lane and Wrightsville Avenue on Thursday, September 26, for repairs. Expect the closings to be from 9 a.m to 4 p.m.
A detour will be set up in the are to divert traffic around the construction scene.
As always, CFPUA asks drivers who find themselves in these areas of construction work to slow down – and put their phones down – for the safety of our crews and contractors.
