WILMINGTON – A block of Market Street will be closed March 18 to allow a city of Wilmington contractor to trim or remove trees posing a hazard to motorists and pedestrians.
The city is coordinating the work with the N.C. Department of Transportation, which maintains Market Street, also designated U.S. 17 Business.
The city has established this detour around the closure in the 2000 block of Market Street: North 23rd Street, Princess Place Drive and North 16th/17th streets, which are one-way pairs.
The closure is expected to last from 6 a.m. until 6 p.m. Drivers should plan for a delay using the detour, or seek an alternate route that day.
