Memorial bridge painting done, Holmes bridge closed late next week


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — More than two years after it started painting is done on the Cape Fear Memorial Bridge.

DOT Resident Engineer Wayne Currie says there’s still a little work left, but nothing that will cause closures and delays.

He expects the painter will face fines for taking too long, but the DOT won’t know for a while how much it will be.

As work wraps on the Memorial Bridge, expect delays next month on the Isabel Holmes Bridge. The DOT says it will close the bridge the night of Friday, June 1 for mechanical work. It will be closed all weekend and reopen early on Monday, June 4.
