NEW HANOVER COUNTY, NC (WECT) -

Crews with the NC Department of Transportation are replacing a pipe along River Road near Halyburton Parkway in New Hanover County.

According to a representative with DOT, the pipe was busted. Replacing it should help get rid of the remaining water in the area and prevent flooding in the future.

Part of River Road was shut down earlier this month due to extreme flooding.
