Diverging Diamond in Leland to close this weekend

LELAND, NC (WWAY) – To finish the paving for the Diverging Diamond Interchange on NC 133, the Department of Transportation will close NC 133/Village Road/River Road between the interchange ramps for US 17/74/76 near Belville/Leland this weekend.

The closure starts at 9 p.m. on Friday.

The DDI will open for traffic by 6 a.m. on Monday.

The DOT says crews need to not only finish paving, but also put down lane striping.

The work depends on the weather and can’t be done if there is rain or a wet roadway.

Drivers on NC 133/River Road, south of the interchange, heading toward Village Road in Leland or on US 74 West will be directed onto US 74 East toward Wilmington to follow their detour.

Drivers using Village Road to access NC 133, south of the interchange or US 74/76 East toward Wilmington should take the ramp onto US 74/76 West toward Whiteville/Myrtle Beach and follow those detour signs.

Drivers are advised to slow down, use caution and stay alert while traveling in the area, and to expect possible delays.

The opening of this DDI is part of the Causeway Bridge Project, which is scheduled this November.
