WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) -

Cardinal Drive between Eastwood Road and Clear Run Drive will be closed beginning June 9.

According to Mike McGill with the Cape Fear Public Utility Authority, contractors will need to close Cardinal Drive as part of CFPUA's Northeast Interceptor project. Cardinal Dr. will remain closed for approximately 30 days once it is closed on Monday June 9.

A detour has been established for the area (see photo). Local residents will retain access to their driveways.

Motorists who use Cardinal as a cut-through are asked to consider taking an alternative route. Drivers are also asked to slow their speed and put their cell phones down for safety when in the area of the construction.
