Filming to cause weekend closures on Cape Fear Memorial Bridge


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- Traffic during what is sure to be a busy St. Patrick's Day weekend may be even busier on the Cape Fear Memorial Bridge thanks to a filming project.

The NCDOT says weather permitting, the bridge will have intermittent overnight closures of no more than five minutes at a time on Saturday and Sunday from 7 p.m. until 5:30 a.m. as film crews work on the bridge.

A DOT spokeswoman said the shooting is for "The Remaining," which began shooting in Wilmington last month. She also said during filming the parking lot of the boat ramp near the bridge will be filled with tents to give it the appearance of a military station. 

Motorists should plan for extra time crossing the bridge during those nights and use caution in the area.
