Sinkhole forces closure on part of S. College Rd, Wrightsville Ave

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — If your commute home involves driving down South College Road or Wrightsville Avenue, you may want to find an alternate route this evening.

CFPUA crews are making an emergency repair to a collapsed sewer that they say may be the reason behind a sinkhole at the intersection of South College Road and Wrightsville Avenue.

As of 3:45 p.m., crews were excavating the site to determine what repairs need to be made. Crews will be on site until the repair is complete.

CFPUA crews have closed the outer northbound lane of College Road for one block in each direction of the intersection. Crews will also close the eastbound lane of Wrightsville Avenue.

CFPUA says this emergency repair is not related to yesterday’s work near the same location. This repair is 100 feet from that location, but is a part of the same sewer line.
