Road Closures


October 16, 2017

200 block of Goldsboro Avenue closed until 5:00pm due to storm water infrastructure replacement.


The N.C. Department of Transportation will close 3rd Street between Willard Street and Carolina Beach Road beginning at 9 p.m. on April 10. The road section will remain closed through Dec. 31, 2017.   

The closure will allow crews to replace a 70-year-old concrete culvert with a new, larger culvert that will better drain excess water from Greenfield Lake.

A signed detour will guide southbound motorists to Dawson Street, 16th Street, Shipyard Boulevard and Carolina Beach Road. Drivers heading northbound on 3rd Street will take Carolina Beach Road to Shipyard Boulevard and 17th Street to Wooster Street.  Traffic will also be restricted to “Trucks Only” on Front Street between Willard Street and Carolina Beach Road, weekdays between 7 and 10 a.m. for southbound traffic, and between 3 and 6 p.m. for northbound traffic.

“These peak hour restrictions will accommodate the recent increase in commercial truck traffic going to and from the Port of Wilmington,” said Wilmington Resident Engineer Daniel Waugh.

Drivers are urged to pay special attention to the travel times and the detour information.
