The North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) is conducting work on the Cape Fear Memorial Bridge to extend the life of the bridge. This preservation project will result in extended lane closures in the eastbound direction, then in the westbound direction. For closure dates, detour routing, and more information about the project, visit NCDOT’s project webpage.
