Sections of three major routes in Sampson County will be repaved in the coming months, thanks to a new contract from the N.C. Department of Transportation.

The routes are:

N.C. 24 between Plum Lane/Loop Road and the Duplin County line
N.C. 41 between Ward Road and Wallace Highway
N.C. 411 between the Roseboro County line and Garland
In addition, eight secondary roads will be resurfaced.

In all, almost 50 miles of roadway asphalt will be refreshed after the NCDOT awarded a $9.9 million contract to Barnhill Contracting Co. of Tarboro.

Work can start as early as Oct. 1, with all paving scheduled to wrap up by November 2019.
Then thereís this:

A section of U.S. 74/76 in eastern Columbus County will be improved with the construction of medians and a traffic signal.

The N.C. Department of Transportation this month awarded a $9 million contract to Highland Paving Co. of Fayetteville to improve a 2.7-mile section of U.S. 74/76 between Water Tank Road in the Delco community of Columbus County and a point just east of the Brunswick County line.

The department will be reconstructing the road into a superstreet design, which redirects motorists on the side roads into turning right onto the highway. U-turn areas will be created to allow drivers who turned right to safely turn around and go in the opposite direction. The design is intended to reduce the risk of crashes, especially high-speed intersection crashes. It is also intended to improve traffic flow along the highway.

The project also will include the installation of a traffic signal on U.S. 74/76 at N.C. 87 to improve safety and mobility.

Construction will begin later this year, and the project is scheduled for completion in summer 2020.

Quote:
MANNS HARBOR - The N.C. Department of Transportation will close the William B. Umstead Bridge, locally known as the Old Manns Harbor Bridge, between 6 a.m. on Saturday, Sept. 15 and noon on Saturday, Sept. 29.

During the closure, workers will be making concrete and metal repairs in order to replace an expansion joint at the eastern end of the bridge. In addition, the closure will accommodate participants in the Outer Banks Triathlon (Sep. 15-16) and the Outer Banks Cycle Race (Sep. 29).

While the bridge is closed, motorists will still be able to cross Croatan Sound between Roanoke Island and the Dare County mainland via the Virginia Dare Memorial Bridge. NCDOT is making every effort to schedule the work and the closure to minimize summertime and holiday travel impacts.

The North Carolina Department of Transportation has announced several major local projects that could begin over the next decade, including an interchange at U.S. 158 and N.C. 12 in Kitty Hawk.

As part of the annual update to the highway departmentís 10-year planning document, known as the Strategic Transportation Improvement Plan, or STIP, projects are scored on a state, regional and local impact level.

In addition to the interchange beginning as early as 2019, the update includes widening U.S. 158 between Barco and Belcross as early as 2025 and a second passenger ferry to run between Hatteras and Ocracoke, as soon as 2027.

These will be placed on the STIP, which will allow for funds to be budgeted for planning, right-of-way acquisition and then eventual construction.

Hereís the breakdown:

-Short Cut Road to superstreet configuration, $91.6 million, right of way 2023, construction 2025.

-Second passenger ferry, Hatteras dock parking lot, $6.5 million, construction 2027.

-Kitty Hawk interchange, $32.2 million, right of way 2027, construction 2029.

An environmental review is under way for the proposed Mid-Currituck Bridge. A timeline for the project is pending approval of the review.
