WILMINGTON– Drivers on the Interstate-140 Bypass in New Hanover County should expect to encounter a temporary lane closure heading northbound over the Cape Fear River beginning Monday, June 25.
The closure is needed so N.C. Department of Transportation crews can safely replace expansion joints. Expansion joints enable the bridge to expand in hot weather and contract in cold weather, avoiding buckling and prolonging the life of the bridge.
The closures will be in place from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. weekdays until Friday, June 29. One lane will remain open at all times.  All lanes will be open by the weekend.
Motorists are urged to slow down and drive carefully through the work zone and to expect possible delays.
