NEW HANOVER COUNTY, N.C. (WECT) – Contractors with the N.C. Department of Transportation have resumed work on a project to replace the aging cable-counterweight ramp system at the terminals for the Southport-Fort Fisher ferry route.
The $3 million project, which began in January and was expected to be completed on April 6, was halted due to Governor Roy Cooper’s “stay-at-home” order over the novel coronavirus pandemic.
A spokesperson for the department said contractors started back up last week and work on the project is expected to be completed by late June or early July.
