For three weeks starting at 9 a.m. on Monday, Feb. 10, there will be significant traffic impacts where Burnett Boulevard/3rd Street, Front Street and Carolina Beach Road converge.
All southbound lanes (heading toward Carolina Beach Road) and the left northbound lane on Burnett Boulevard will be closed from Willard Street to the intersection. However, the Carolina Beach Road free-flow right lane onto Burnett/3rd Street will remain open, as will Burnett Boulevard’s left turn onto Front Street.
A detour will direct traffic to Shipyard Boulevard and 16th/17th streets and Dawson/Wooster streets.
The closure is necessary so that telephone lines can be relocated prior to a future NC DOT project to replace an underground drainage pipe in the same area, which is expected to begin this fall.
