The N.C. Department of Transportation will close the Cape Fear Memorial Bridge for several overnight periods while crews inspect it.

The Wilmington bridge will close through Thursday at 9 p.m. and reopen the following days at 5 a.m. While the bridge is closed, crews will conduct their annual aerial cable inspection.

Drivers needing to get around the closure should take the Isabel Holmes Bridge or Interstate I40. They should also plan ahead and use caution near the closure.
