CAROLINA BEACH, NC (WECT) – Traffic was backed up for miles Friday on Carolina Beach Road heading towards Pleasure Island.
Construction on Snow's Cut Bridge has the road cut down to only two lanes. On top of that, crews spent the day pouring cement on the bridge, stopping traffic for minutes at a time.
Carolina Beach Police Chief Kurt Bartley said the police department will work closely with the Department of Transportation this weekend to monitor the traffic.
Bartley encourages drivers to get in the left lane well ahead of approaching the bridge, so they don't have to merge at the last second.
The construction project is expected to be complete by the middle of May.
