WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — A Wilmington bridge featured in the hit show “One Tree Hill” is getting a facelift, but don’t worry the city says it’s keeping its iconic look.

According to the City of Wilmington, necessary structural repairs are underway on the one-way Harry Forden 6th Street bridge, which crosses the old path of the CSX rail line as it enters Wilmington on the Northside, between Campbell and Hanover streets.

The city says it should be finished in February.
