WILMINGTON, N.C. (AP) - Intermittent lane closures are scheduled for the Interstate 140 bridge over the Northeast Cape Fear River to allow workers to make repairs.

The lane closures are scheduled to begin at 9 p.m. Sunday and end at 5 a.m. on Monday. Two lanes will remain open for traffic at all times.

The N.C. Department of Transportation says the closures are necessary to repair a washout on the side of U.S. 421 next to the bridge.

There will not be a detour, but travelers should expect delays.
