More than 40 miles of roadway in Johnston County will get a fresh surface and new lane markings, under a new contract approved this month by the N.C. Department of Transportation.

The work will affect 20.5 miles of the following three state highways in the county:

N.C. 39 between U.S. 301 in Selma and the roundabout at N.C. 42
N.C. 222 between the Wayne County line and N.C. 42
N.C. 50 between Fayetteville Street and U.S. 301

Additionally, six secondary routes will be resurfaced:

Hanna Creek Road
Go Cart Road
Thunder Road
Battlefield Road
Benson Hardee Road
Barber Mill Road

A total 44 miles will be repaved under the contract awarded to Fred Smith Co. of Raleigh for almost $3.4 million. The contract starts in April and is scheduled to end in July 2020.

This is one of 21 major highway and bridge projects awarded this month by the NCDOT. Per state law they went to the lowest bidder among qualified contractors. They are worth $331.5 million, more than $57 million under engineer estimates.

3 year construction timeline for a less than 2 miles stretch of road....where there is over 50,000 cars a day.

That sounds like fun.

POLLOCKSVILLE – A new section of a Jones County highway bypass will open this week and traffic will be detoured as the final portion of the bypass is completed.

On Wednesday, crews with the N.C. Department of Transportation will open a new, 2.5-mile section of the U.S. 17 Bypass. This new section of the bypass is about 90 percent complete.

NCDOT expects traffic will be able to drive the full length of the U.S. 17 Bypass by late this year, with the project being completed in 2020. The bypass will include a four-lane divided road that will connect U.S. 17 north of Spring Hill Road in Onslow County, and then reconnect to the U.S. 17 Bypass southwest of New Bern.

When the new section opens this week, traffic will be detoured. Northbound traffic will go onto the interchange at N.C. 58. At the bottom of the ramp, drivers will turn left onto the highway and proceed to the stop sign and flashing red light at U.S. 17. Drivers will turn left onto U.S. 17.

Drivers on U.S. 17 south will turn right onto N.C. 58 and enter back onto the U.S. 17 Bypass using the ramp designated for U.S. 17 south.

Drivers should anticipate needing extra time to learn the new traffic pattern, and slow down and use caution while near the work zone.

Drivers on Interstate 95 in Robeson County will encounter overnight detours next week to allow an N.C. Department of Transportation contractor to replace the riding surface of several bridges.

The Arizona-based prime contractor, The Truesdell Corp., will do the work first on the pair of I-95 bridges, both north and southbound, at exit 31 in St. Pauls. Crews already have milled away the top layer of old concrete, so now they will refurbish the deck with polymer concrete – a newer material that pours and dries faster than previous types of concrete.

For the safety of the crews and the public and to expedite the work, weather permitting they will start with a lane closure at 7 p.m. on Monday, March 11, followed by a detour off the interstate at 9 p.m. so they can spread the new concrete surface. Then, the following night they’ll follow the same procedure for the southbound bridge at the same location.

The detour for exit 31 in both directions is simple: Drivers will get off at the ramp, cross the highway and re-enter the interstate.

Once finished at exit 31, the contractor will work on a pair of bridges just to the south of that exit and a pair of bridges to the north of it, again detouring traffic off one bridge per night. For those bridges which don’t have exits the detours will be spread farther apart along the interstate. Detour details and dates will be announced at DriveNC.gov and on the highway’s electric overhead message signs.

Weather permitting, the crews can complete the work requiring detours on all six bridges by the week of March 18. When they later perform follow-up work on those bridges, there will be no detours – just lane closures overnight. They will not do any work or close the interstate on Friday or Saturday nights.
