Wrightsville Beach Drawbridge to close for painting


WRIGHTSVILLE BEACH, NC (WWAY) -- The only way to drive on and off Wrightsville Beach will be closed for four night next month as crews paint.

All lanes of the Heide Trask Drawbridge are scheduled to be closed overnight Sept. 8-11 from 11:30 p.m. to 5 a.m. weather permitting.

The NCDOT's Contractor, American Bridge Company, will clean and paint the structural steel on the bridge.

Police officers with blue lights will be stationed on each side of the bridge during the total closures and emergency vehicles only will be allowed to proceed across the bridge with very minimal delays. Messages will be placed on the project’s variable message signs announcing this closure by Friday, September 6.
