WILMINGTON, NC (CFPUA) -- CFPUA crews are responding to a water main break on South 17th Street and Wright Street (in the 900 to 1000 block in the proximity of the railroad tracks and Cape Fear Literacy Council). This break, caused by cold weather, is not anticipated to impact service.

To facilitate repairs, traffic on 17th Street headed towards Market will be narrowed to a single (left-hand) lane. Motorists are encouraged to follow detours established in this area, or use alternate routes.

Repairs may take several hours. Updates will be provided when the normal traffic pattern is restored.
