Market Street will be closed to thru traffic between 17th and 23rd streets from Monday, April 14 to Thursday, April 17 from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m.
The closure is necessary so that crews can remove ten diseased and damaged oak trees that were further weakened during the February ice storm. The trees will be replaced with ten High Rise Live Oaks.
Motorists will be detoured to Princess Place Drive as an alternate route. The project is a joint effort between the City of Wilmington and the NCDOT.
