Six months of bridge work, closures start tonight at Wrightsville Beach


WRIGHTSVILLE BEACH, NC (WWAY) -- The Wrightsville Beach drawbridge will limit traffic to and from the island for six months due to electrical and mechanical repairs.

The first of the four-lane shutdowns starts tonight. They will continue from time to time through March.

Only emergency vehicles will be allowed to cross between 11:30 p.m. and 5 a.m. when crews are working. During the day, two lanes will remain open. Those lanes will also be opened on nights when crews are not working.
