TRAFFIC ALERT: Isabel Holmes and Cape Fear Memorial Bridge expected to go up at noon

Posted: Updated:

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - According to the Cape Fear Memorial Bridge Tender, a tanker is coming through the Port City causing both the Isabel Holmes and the Cape Fear Memorial bridge to go up around Noon today.

The Isabel Holmes Bridge is expected to go up at Noon and the Cape Fear Memorial is expected to go up shortly after, at 12:30 p.m.

This is the same tanker that came through Port City Thursday, April 25, and  also experienced a delay as the bridge had technical difficulties and got stuck half way through.  Traffic was at a stand still for 30 minutes until crews fixed this issue. 

The bridge tender says the problem is fixed now and should have no issues this time around.

Plan for delays if you are heading in or out of the Port City between Noon and 1pm.
