Traffic moving again on Cape Fear Memorial Bridge


Traffic is moving westbound again on the Cape Fear Memorial Bridge after about a 30-minute delay.

For the second time in less than a week, traffic was backed up because of a problem on the bridge. A bridge tender said westbound traffic out of Wilmington was stopped since the bridge lowered after an opening around 1 p.m. The problem was a barrier that is stuck in the down position.

Friday afternoon traffic was blocked in both directions after the bridge would not close back into place properly after it opened. That delay was felt by drivers throughout the evening commute.
