Additional Heide Trask Drawbridge overnight closures have been scheduled Sunday, March 9 through Thursday, March 13, from 11:30 p.m. to 5 a.m. for crews to replace and adjust the center span locks.

The scheduled closures mark the third week of consecutive Sunday through Thursday closures.

Wanda James, assistant resident engineer for the North Carolina Department of Transportation Burgaw office, said as of January 2014, 95 percent of the work was completed and about 97 percent was completed by the end of February 2014. 

For the next couple of weeks, most bridge openings will be closer to 15 minutes long, compared to the typical eight-minute openings.

The scheduled completion date is March 31.
