WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - If you plan on traveling on 3rd Street in Wilmington anytime soon, you may have to take an alternate route.

The northbound lane will be closed between Castle and Church Streets so that a sanitary sewer line can be replaced.

A detour will be set up beginning at Dawson Street, taking drivers to 5th Avenue.

The construction work will begin Monday and lasts for about five weeks.

Traffic in the southbound lane of 3rd street is not going to be impacted.
