WRIGHTSVILLE BEACH — After pausing work on the Banks Channel Bridge in spring, due to extra repairs and supplies needed, crews are set to resume work by next week, according to the North Carolina Department of Transportation.
However, the bridge will close to traffic for one night, Aug. 17, 7 p.m. Crews will install lane shifts and the bridge will reopen to traffic by 5 a.m. the following day.
“When it reopens, there will be two lanes for traffic going toward the beach and one lane for traffic leaving it. This change will allow a preservation project that began last year to continue,” a release from NCDOT noted.
Drivers should proceed through the work area with caution when crews are in the roadway.
