WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - For the second time, the North Carolina Department of Transportation shut down the Cape Fear Memorial Bridge. Engineers say they are working to replace the cables that help to pull up the draw bridge.
Two teams of 30 people are working around the clock to replace all 64 cables. Engineers say the last time the cables were replaced was 40 years ago, so the work is needed now.
