WILMINGTON – The N.C. Department of Transportation will close several lanes of traffic one morning this weekend to trim low-hanging tree limbs.
“Between 7 a.m. and noon on Dec. 15, the left eastbound lane and the right westbound lane of Market Street will be closed near 23rd Street. Due to the right lane closure on Market Street, 23rd Street will be closed from Lyndon Avenue to Market Street,” according to the NCDOT.
The purpose of the tree trimming is to help increase the visibility of traffic signals along the routes.
“During the work, southbound 23rd Street traffic will be detoured onto Princess Place Drive, 16th Street and Market Street. Northbound 23rd Street will be detoured onto Market Street, 17th Street and Princess Place Drive. Drivers should anticipate needing some extra time for their Sunday morning commute and use caution while crews are working,” the release concludes.
