WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — A temporary traffic light has been installed at the intersection of Carolina Beach Road and Sunnyvale Drive in Wilmington.

This will be activated in the next few days in preparation for the River Road closure now scheduled to begin on September 30.

The $1.37 million project is expected to close the road for up to six-months so crews can replace a large drainage culvert beneath River Road and also relocate a CFPUA force main sewer line.

Due to the large volume of traffic affected by the detour, the City of Wilmington says a temporary signal is being installed at the intersection of Carolina Beach Road and Sunnyvale Drive to accommodate northbound traffic turning left onto Carolina Beach Road.
