Daytime lane closures in the work zone around the Marc Basnight Bridge over Oregon Inlet will resume Monday, March 9.

According to a press release from the North Carolina Department of Transportation, during the lane closures, workers will complete “punch list” items on the bridge project, including finishing touches to the bridge deck and railings and paving the final asphalt layer on the roadway leading up to the bridge itself.

Motorists are advised to be aware of the possibility of daytime lane closures at any time from 7 a.m. on Mondays through 3 p.m. on Fridays. During the lane closures, contractors will use flaggers to control traffic and post appropriate warning signs.


Lane closures will vary in length, but will typically be between a half-mile and one mile long. One lane of traffic will be open at all times. Drivers are urged to slow down and use caution while crews are at work.


Work is anticipated to be complete by mid-June.
