Q. When they painted the Cape Fear Memorial Bridge, why did they not paint the rails that divide the westbound and eastbound lanes. They were painted the same color as bridge before. They only painted them on the bridge itself and now it looks tacky.
A. The painting contract only included the lift span portion of the bridge, said Amanda Glynn, the N.C. Department of Transportation’s bridge engineer for Division 3, which includes Wilmington.
“We hope to have a future contract to paint the approach spans,” Glynn said. “When we do paint the rest of the structure, we will paint the approach span center rail as well.”
