The D.O.T. says workers are installing a temporary traffic signal at the intersection of Front Street and the Cape Fear Memorial Bridge ramp to prepare for the eight month closure of U.S. 421/3rd street. That closure is scheduled to start April 10.

“Drivers who normally use the ramp should make a right at 3rd Street to access Front Street/U.S. 421 Truck,” said Division Traffic Engineer Jessie Leonard. “If traveling in the area, please use caution and obey the posted speed limit. The signal will be in place throughout the 3rd Street closure for the Greenfield Lake Culvert Project.”
