RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - Motorists using the southern portion of N.C. Highway 12 next week will encounter N.C. Department of Transportation crews doing work in the wake of Hurricane Arthur.

A statement from the department said crews will close one lane on the Bonner Bridge during daylight hours beginning Monday and lasting through Thursday. Officials say the closure is necessary to allow crews to safely take some samples as part of the department’s ongoing monitoring of the bridge.

Workers began on Friday removing large amounts of marsh grass within the right of way that was washed up during the storm surge.
