Four-hour Closings of Two Bridges on the Northern Cape Fear River, Wilmington, NC Slated For 10/20/12

Posted by Larry Dorminy | Posted on 09-11-2012

Only the tallest sailing vessels will be affected by the 4-hour, temporary closing (described below) of the Hwy 74 Bridge, as it has a CLOSED vertical clearance of 65ft, but the 40-foot closed vertical clearance of the Isabel S. Holmes Bridge near downtown Wilmington, NC, will be a problem for many sailcraft. Fortunately, we are only talking about a 4-hour closure on 10/20/12!

Mariners are advised that the S.R. 74 Bridge and the Isabel S. Holmes Bridge over the Northeast Cape Fear River in
Wilmington, NC. will deviate from the regulation and be maintained in the closed position for runners during the annual Beach2Battleship Iron and Half–Triathlon. On Saturday October 20, 2012 the S.R. 74 Bridge will be closed from 7:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. and the Isabel S.
