Safety Improvement to Benefit Drivers using Ramp
Wilmington - The U.S. 421 ramp to eastbound U.S. 76 and U.S. 17 Business North in Wilmington will be closed nightly from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m., Sunday, July 31, until Thursday, Aug. 4, weather permitting.
The closures are necessary for Department of Transportation crews to safely install lighting on the ramp as part of the Leland Causeway Bridge project, which is scheduled to be open for traffic in November.
A signed detour will guide motorists to the ramp for Brunswick County Beaches, South U.S. 17/N.C. 133 and West U.S. 74/76. Motorists are advised to use caution while traveling in the area and to expect possible delays.
