Busy river traffic will cause delays due to both bridges going up on Memorial Day.
A large ship is schedules to make its way down the Cape Fear River around 5 p.m. Monday according to the Cape Fear Memorial Bridge tender. The ship is leaving Kinder Morgan and will cause the Isabel Holmes Bridge to go up first and then the Cape Fear Memorial Bridge shortly after during the 5 p.m. hour.
If you are heading in or out of town between 5 and 6 tonight, plan for delays.
The U.S. Coast Guard Diligence came back into Wilmington around 9:40 Monday morning causing the Cape Fear Memorial Bridge to go up.
