WILMINGTON — Over the next two months, crews from Cape Fear Public Utility Authority will begin installing new infrastructure at an intersection in northern New Hanover County.

Starting Monday, June 5, a four-month project installing new sewer infrastructure will get underway at Market Street and Porters Neck Road.

There are no scheduled work traffic interruptions until after the July 4th holiday. The right turn lane from northbound Market Street onto Porters Neck Road will be closed to traffic after Independence Day, according to CFPUA. 

The authority expects the closure to last eight weeks; however, Oak Landing shopping center will remain accessible.
