RALEIGH — Weather permitting, bridge inspections will result in intermittent lane closures on the Martin Luther King Jr. Parkway/U.S. 74 bridge over Smith Creek and 23rd Street in New Hanover County beginning Tuesday, April 2 through Friday, April 12.

The inspections will be done on weekdays only between 9:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m.  Crews will inspect lanes in both directions during the course of the two-week period, but will close only one lane at a time.

Motorists should plan for extra time crossing the bridges during that week and use caution in the area.
