Stretch of Market Street in front of NHHS to close for multiple days due to manhole work

A stretch of Market Street in front of New Hanover High School will be inaccessible later this week while Cape Fear Public Utility Authority crews replace a manhole. 

According to a news release from the Authority, all lanes of Market Street between 12th and 16th Streets will be closed in both directions, from 7 p.m. Thursday, April 22, until 6 a.m. Tuesday, April 27.

“While local traffic and on-street parking will be allowed between 12th and 14th streets and between 15th and 16th streets, the 1400 block of Market Street will be completely closed to allow a contractor for CFPUA to complete the manhole replacement,” according to the news release

Adjacent streets are expected to remain open during the operation as a detour.
