ELIZABETHTOWN – A section of Johnsontown Road, which had been closed since Hurricane Florence, reopened this afternoon in Bladen County.

The September storm’s floodwaters undermined the pavement leading to both sides of the bridge, and it damaged the substructure of the bridge, which was built in 1970 and crossed Turnbull Creek near N.C. 242.

To expedite repairs, the N.C. Department of Transportation used a process known as Express Design Build when it awarded a nearly $1.2 million contract following the hurricane.

It's the last road in Division 6 that had been closed due to floodwaters. The division covers Bladen, Columbus, Cumberland, Harnett and Robeson counties.

A public meeting is being held on February 26 at the Maxwell Center in Goldsboro to discuss widening US-13 (N. Berkeley Boulevard) to a 4-lane median-divided road between New Hope Road and Saulston Road.

https://www.ncdot.gov/news/press-rel...pen-house.aspx

As someone that used to live there (and still visits), these improvements are much welcome.

More than 30 miles of roadways in Wayne County will be resurfaced this year after the N.C. Department of Transportation awarded two contracts.

Segments of N.C. 222 near the Johnston County line, N.C. 581 around the U.S. 70 Bypass, and U.S. 117 near Fremont and Pikeville are the primary routes to be refreshed.

S.T. Wooten Corp. of Wilson earned the contract to repave 15.6 miles for $2.5 million.

Barnhill Contracting Co., of Rocky Mount won a contract for $1.9 mill to resurface 16 miles of secondary routes in Wayne County.

Both contractors may begin in March, and the contract calls for completion by the end of the year.
Having driven US-117 fairly recently, this is long overdue. That road is in rough shape.
