The NCDOT will be closing the popular cut through to Market Street in Ogden on Monday as part of the Military Cutoff Extension project.

WILMINGTON — Drivers in the Ogden area who utilize the Torchwood Boulevard cut through will soon need to find a new route according to the North Carolina Department of Transportation, at least until late August.

“As part of the Military Cutoff Extensions Project we will be closing Torchwood Blvd on Monday, June 24th to install drainage lines and reroute CFPUA Utility Lines in order to construct a reinforced concrete box culvert. Torchwood Blvd. will be closed from Needle Fish to Bow Hunter for two months,” NCDOT spokeswoman Lauren Haviland said.
But drivers will have the option of taking a temporary detour to get to where they need to be.
“A temporary detour has been constructed across the project connecting Brittany lakes Drive to Lendire Road. Drivers heading southwest on Torchwood Blvd. will follow the signed detour using White Road to Brittany Lakes to Lendire Road to Beacon Drive. Drivers heading northeast on Torchwood Blvd. will follow the signed detour to Beacon Drive to Lendire to Brittany Lakes,” she said.
