Sewer work to cause traffic shifts in midtown this weekend

WILMINGTON — Cape Fear Public Utility Authority will be conducting work on a sewer main that will shift traffic patterns in Wilmington for almost three days, beginning this weekend.

Crews will be connecting a sewer force main to a sanitary sewer manhole near South College Road and New Centre Drive from Saturday, Apr. 23, at 7 a.m. to Monday, Apr. 25, 5 p.m.

The CFPUA will close the right turn lane of northbound South College Road onto eastbound New Centre Drive. Motorists will be guided into the inner lane when turning from South College Road onto New Centre Drive.

“Left-turning traffic from southbound South College Road onto New Centre Drive will be shifted into a single lane,” a release noted.
