Wooster St. water main break could affect evening rush

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Traffic delays near the Cape Fear Memorial Bridge could last into the evening commute as crews work on a water main break on Wooster Street.

CFPUA says the six-inch cast iron pipe, which is 60 to 80 years old, broke this morning near the intersection of Wooster and 3rd streets.

Police and firefighters closed three westbound lanes of Wooster as CFPUA crews work to fix the problem. Officials advise drivers to avoid Wooster between 5th Avenue and 3rd Street.

WFD suggests traffic wanting to cross the bridge to Brunswick County should use 3rd Street or Front Street or consider using the Isabel Holmes Bridge on the north end of downtown.

CFPUA says no customers are affected by the main break. The utility also says a boil water advisory is unlikely.
