RALEIGH N.C. Department of Transportation crews reopened the N.C. 11 bridge over the Cape Fear River in Riegelwood this afternoon. The bridge was closed last week after being hit by an oversized piece of equipment.

An emergency contract was awarded to a contractor who heat-straightened and replaced the damaged cross beams.
