NC 11 Bridge closed for repairs


BLADEN COUNTY, NC (WWAY) -- The North Carolina Department of Transportation has closed the NC 11 Bridge over the Cape Fear River to all traffic.

W.R. Marsh, the Resident Engineer, said it's because of damage from being struck by a piece of equipment Monday evening.

NCHP and Bladen County's Kelly Fire Department are helping until NC DOT puts up the traffic control barricades and devices. Inspectors will visit the site Tuesday to fully assess the damage and put together a repair plan.

Drivers will have to cross the river in Wilmington or Elizabethtown to cross the Cape Fear River in this area.
