Traffic on the Emerald Isle bridge is reduced to a single lane at night as the structure is repaired.
The work began Sunday night and North Carolina Department of Transportation is closing one lane of the Cameron Langston Bridge at 7 p.m. and reopening it at 6 a.m. each night through Thursday.
The work includes repairing the bridge seats, on which the girders rest. The repairs were already scheduled for this year but were moved up after a recent inspection.
Flaggers are to be at the ends of the bridge directing traffic. Drivers should use caution near crews and the work zone and plan ahead as their commute may take longer than normal, according to NCDOT.
