According to the bridge tenders, the Cape Fear Memorial is expected to open at approximately 12:45 p.m. with the Isabel Holmes to follow at about 1.

The ship was originally supposed to come through the bridges early Thursday morning but had to turn around because the Hilton Railroad Bridge was unable to open.
