WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — The Cape Fear Memorial Bridge is no longer the 10th worst bridge in North Carolina. It’s the ninth worst.
AAA Carolinas’ annual substandard bridge report says the span between Wilmington and Brunswick County is structurally deficient.
Built in 1969, AAA says the Cape Fear Memorial carries about 343,000 vehicles a week across the river. For now, there are no plans to replace the bridge, and money for such projects is tight.
