NEW HANOVER COUNTY, NC (WWAY) — Starting Monday morning, the Department of Transportation will close lanes on I-40 near mile marker 414 for bridge repairs.
The D.O.T. says crew will repair the concrete deck of the eastbound bridge over the Northeast Cape Fear River.
The lane closures will take place from 9:00 a.m. until 3:30 p.m. on Monday and Tuesday. One lane will remain open for traffic in each direction.
“Safety is our top priority,” said Bridge Maintenance Engineer Adam Britt. “We live in a region with cold winters and hot summers. It takes a toll on our bridges, which is why we examine every component and make repairs as needed.”
The D.O.T. says there will not be a detour and drivers should expect delays.
