This afternoon, Cape Fear Public Utility Authority (CFPUA) contractors are conducting an emergency water main repair in the middle of the southbound lane in the 1000 block of S. Kerr Avenue. This work will require the closure of the southbound lane through the evening rush hour.
One lane in each direction will still be available; the center turn lane will serve as the southbound lane. We ask motorists who use S. Kerr avenue in this area to prepare for delays or – better yet - use an alternate route.
This is a particularly dangerous repair site, so we ask for drivers to slow down in the area and to pay extra attention by putting down their cell phones.
CFPUA crews will attempt to make the repair under pressure to avoid the issuance of a precautionary boil water advisory. However, that status could change as the repair progresses.
