HAVELOCK – Two of the four lanes of a section of U.S. 70 in Craven County will close overnight this week as contract crews install drainage pipes as part of a new overpass.

The left eastbound lane of U.S. 70 near the intersection of Hickman Hill Road and the left westbound lane near Slocum Road will be closed overnight. To avoid possible backups, the lane closures will begin at 9 p.m. and reopen at 4 a.m., April 24 through April 27. These closures are weather permitting.

While the lanes are closed, contractors will install median drainage pipes.

This work is part of the project to build a new overpass across U.S. 70 into Slocum Gate at MCAS Cherry Point. The $24.4 million project impacts 1.2 miles of the highway and will allow traffic to freely flow into the Slocum Gate entrance.

MANNS HARBOR – Drivers planning to use the William B. Umstead Bridge on U.S. 64 over the Croatan Sound over the next four weeks need to be aware of lane closures on the bridge.

A required inspection of the structure, known locally as the Old Manns Harbor Bridge, calls for alternating lane closures between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. during weekdays from April 29 through May 23.

Traffic control during the closures will be handled using flagmen and motorists need to use caution and anticipate delays as each lane takes turns traveling along the 3.8-mile bridge.

An alternate route is available to avoid potential backups using the Virginia Dare Bridge on U.S. 64 Bypass, located south of the Umstead Bridge.

The N.C. Department of Transportation continues maintenance work ahead of resurfacing a Lenoir County road and will close another section of it next week.

Nobles Mill Road, northeast of Pink Hill, will be closed between 8 a.m. April 30 and 5 p.m. May 1. Within the 1/10th of a mile work zone, NCDOT will replace a crossline pipe in advance of resurfacing the road later this year.

Earlier this week, the same work was completed nearby​.

During the two-day closure, traffic will be detoured onto U.S. 258 and Jonestown Road. Drivers should anticipate needing extra time and use caution when approaching the work zone.

HAVELOCK – Traffic will be shifted on U.S. 70 during the overnight hours three times as contractors work to install bridge girders for an overpass in Craven County.

On April 30, May 3 and May 6, from 9 p.m. to 4 a.m., the left lane of U.S. 70 East will be closed starting near the intersection of Hickman Hill Road, and the right lane of U.S. 70 West will be closed starting at the Walmart intersection, west of Catawba Road. A shift will be required for the open westbound lane. These dates are weather permitting.

Crews contracted with the N.C. Department of Transportation will set girders over U.S. 70 West as part of the new overpass across the highway into Slocum Gate at MCAS Cherry Point.

Between 9 p.m. and 4 a.m. access to Slocum Road and Slocum Gate will not be allowed. The gate will close at 9 p.m. and reopen at its normal time the following morning.

During the closures the contractor may stop all traffic, but for no more than 30 minutes at a time. The contractor would perform this type of closure as a safety precaution.

Motorists should anticipate needing extra time and slow down when approaching and within the work zone.

This work is part of the $24.4 million project to improve the U.S. 70 corridor, including Slocum Gate.

LA GRANGE – The N.C. Department of Transportation will close a Lenoir County road for two weeks while crews replace multiple pipes.

Beginning May 6, over the two-week period a different section of N.C. 903 will close between Brothers Road in Lenoir County and Parkston Road in Greene County. The road, north of La Grange, is expected to be closed while crews replace crossline pipes ahead of resurfacing it.

Because the location of work will change throughout the two weeks, the detour routes will also change. The detours for each date are as follow:

May 6 and 7: Heading north: Drivers will use Maynard Hicks Road, Frink School Road and Parkstown Road; Heading south: It will be Parkstown Road, La Grange Road and Maynard Hicks Road.

May 8 and 9: The detour route uses Brothers Road and Five Points Road.

The later dates and detours will be announced when they’re available.

Drivers should anticipate needing extra time for their commute and slowing down when approaching the work zone.

SMITHFIELD – Drivers on Interstate 95 in Johnston County will encounter overnight lane reductions starting this month and lasting through much of this year to allow contract workers to safely upgrade the guardrails and drainage systems in the grassy median.

The project stretches 17 miles, between mile marker 81 (the I-40 Benson exit) and mile marker 98. From mid-May until November, drivers in both directions will encounter occasional sections reduced to one lane after 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and after 10 p.m. on the weekends.

The lanes will be reopened by 7 each morning.

The improvements will include replacing the cable-guide rail and guard rail systems, which are nearing their lifespan. Some guardrail and drainage boxes along the outside shoulders will be repaired or upgraded, too.

Fred Smith Co. of Raleigh will do the work, after the N.C. Department of Transportation awarded a $2.3 million contract last month.

Motorists should be alert when approaching the work zone, obey the posted speed limit and allow extra time to reach their destinations.
