WILMINGTON — After a delayed start due to Hurricane Idalia, downtown construction will begin Monday along a portion of South Front Street.

Portions of the the corridor will be shuttered to traffic as repairs get underway to restore the downtown street’s historic brick. Crews will remove some asphalt already layered over the bricks at Queen and Castle streets.

The city is upfitting existing bricks and adding new ones as part of the rehabilitation project. City of Wilmington council adopted a policy in 2017 to preserve its existing brick streets.

The project is expected to last eight to 10 weeks. There will be signs and other measures in place to help with traffic and congestion. The detour route will be be Surry Street, though other options will be open for motorists.

A warning regarding the work will be erected at Front and Nun streets and at the intersection of Front and Burnett streets. As well, a message board will be placed at the intersection of Carolina Beach Road and West Lake Shore Drive.
