WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) -

Crews with the city of Wilmington are wrapping up work to replace a failing drainage pipe on Cassidy Drive this week and will be moving to Ewell Drive next week.

Cassidy Drive has been closed since Feb. 5 and is expected to reopen to traffic by the end of the week.

Beginning Monday, March 12, a portion of Ewell Drive will be closed near Bragg Drive so that crews can replace a failing storm drainage pipe.

The road will be closed to all traffic, however, residents will still have access to their properties.

The project is expected to ease flooding that occurs in the area during heavy rains.

The work is expected to be complete by early April.
