The N.C. Department of Transportation is scheduling multiple overnight lane closures on a coastal bridge beginning this weekend. A news release from the department on Thursday says the Emerald Isle Bridge will be reduced to one lane on Sunday at 9 p.m. Lanes will reopen the next morning at 6 a.m. On the evenings of April 12-15, crews will close one lane at 7 p.m. and reopen it at 6 a.m. the next day. The work includes repairing the bridge seats, which the girders rest on. The repairs were already scheduled for this year but were moved up after a recent inspection.
