Bridge to bridge Riverwalk almost complete

Work to extend and repair the City of Wilmington’s #1 tourist attraction is progressing.

Northern Riverwalk
A new 1,100-foot section section of Riverwalk is taking shape between Harnett and Cowan streets, along the edge of the future Northern Waterfront Park. 

Construction on this $2.1 million section of Riverwalk began last fall and is expected to be completed in August. Support piles and shoreline stabilization have been installed and almost 50 percent of the framing has been constructed. The nearby recently completed Marina section is now open to the public. 

Once this section is complete, it will create a continuous 1.75-mile Riverwalk from near the Cape Fear Memorial Bridge to the Isabel Holmes Bridge.

Southern Riverwalk
Work to improve stabilization at older sections of the Riverwalk at Muters Alley, Orange Street and Ann Street are now complete. In conjunction with the repairs, drainage improvements were constructed to help improve area flooding that occurs in the area during heavy rains. 

Work on these sections was funded through the city’s 5-year infrastructure improvement plan.
