Cape Fear Memorial Bridge back to normal after earlier problem


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- The bridgetender says things are back to normal at the Cape Fear Memorial Bridge after a technical problem caused the bridge to get stuck while trying to raise for a passing ship.

The bridgetender says a short of some sort caused the problem, which has tied up traffic for about half an hour. He says the problem has been fixed, and the bridge is now all the way up to allow a tanker ship to continue up river. Once the ship passes, the bridge will go back down and let traffic flow normally.
