Motorists in the area will experience three westbound lanes closed in the 3300 block of Oleander. The driveway into Hanover Shopping Center adjacent to the Chick-fil-A is also closed to traffic. All lanes are open at the intersection with Independence Boulevard.

The closures will remain in place for approximately eight hours as Cape Fear Public Utility Authority crews work to correct the issue.
