A spokesperson for The North Carolina Department of Transportation said due to recent wet weather there will construction delays.

Work on the Highway 17 bridge over a Camp Lejeune Marine Base tank trail just north of Holly Ridge will be extended until July 25.

The daily intermittent lane closures will occur from 8 a.m.-4 p.m., Monday-Friday, as crews replace the bridge expansion joints.

The bridge work was originally supposed to be completed by July 19.
