MAYSVILLE - The N.C. Department of Transportation will open three of the four final lanes on the new U.S. 17 Bypass in Jones and Onslow counties this week.

Early Thursday afternoon, NCDOT will open three lanes of the new U.S. 17 Bypass between Deppe Loop Road and N.C. 58 in Pollocksville. There will be one southbound lane and two northbound lanes open to traffic.

Northbound traffic traveling from Jacksonville will be directed onto the new U.S. 17 northbound lanes. This will split traffic onto each side of the grass median.

Traffic heading out of Maysville, south towards Jacksonville, will be directed to make a right turn onto U.S. 17 North and then make a U-turn to head back on U.S. 17 South.

Drivers should anticipate short delays while workers install temporary traffic control devices, which are required for the new traffic pattern and safety.

The unveiling of these new lanes is part of a 16.3-mile-long project which start south of Belgrade and ties into the existing U.S. 17 New Bern bypass. The project costs about $143.4 million and is expected to be complete later this year.

WILMINGTON – The N.C. Department of Transportation will begin making bridge preservation repairs to a Wilmington bridge Thursday evening.

NCDOT will close the Isabel Holmes Bridge at 7 p.m. and all lanes will reopen at 6 a.m. Friday. Closures will continue between 7 p.m. and 6 a.m. every Sunday through Thursday. The bridge repairs are expected to last through the spring of 2021.

The $17.9 million contract for the repairs was awarded in February to PCL Civil Constructors, Inc. of Raleigh. The project area will be just under a half mile long and includes the removal and replacement of the grid deck, repairs of the concrete deck and riding surface on the bridge, as well as, remodeling the control house and painting.

Signs will be set up in the area directing traffic around the closure. Drivers should anticipate needing extra time for their commute and use caution when approaching the work zone.

POLLOCKSVILLE- Beginning early next week, the N.C. Department of Transportation will close a section of a Jones County road.

Plans are to close Ten Mile Fork Road starting at 6 p.m. June 24 and reopen it at 7 p.m. June 25. A contractor will pour the concrete deck for a bridge over the Pollocksville road.

Traffic will be detoured from Ten Mile Fork Road using Scott Road, Oak Grove Road and Killis Murphy Road/ Loop Road. Drivers should anticipate needing extra time for their commute and slow down when approaching the work zone.

This construction is part of a 16.3-mile project which starts south of Belgrade and ties into the U.S. 17 bypass around New Bern. The project costs about $143.4 million and is expected to be complete later this year.

WILMINGTON – A contract to build a new bridge in Brunswick County has been awarded.

S & C Construction, LLC. of Wilmington received a nearly $2.5 million to build a new bridge over Bear Pen Island Swamp on Green Swamp Road between U.S. 17 and U.S. 74.

While it is considered structurally deficient, the current bridge is still safe for drivers and will be used while the contractor builds the new one. That eliminates the need for a detour route.

The contractor may begin work in late July and has until May of 2020 to complete the work.

This is one of six road and bridge projects recently awarded by the Department, at a cost of nearly $53.8 million.

WILMINGTON - The N.C. Department of Transportation is repairing a section of a New Hanover County highway, U.S. 421 Truck.

A section of U.S. 421 Truck has been narrowed to one lane and NCDOT will use a flagging operation to direct traffic around a sinkhole in the southbound lanes. NCDOT estimates it will reopen the lanes by 5 p.m. today.

The area is less than a half-mile long near Marstellar Street.

Drivers are urged to find an alternate route, as increased congestion is expected. Drivers should also use extreme caution and slow down when approaching and in the work zone.

MOUNT OLIVE — A bridge replacement project will close a heavily traveled road connecting Duplin County and Mount Olive for up to almost eight months. The closure will mean a miles-long detour for motorists traveling between the Rones Chapel area of Duplin County and Mount Olive.

The state is replacing the bridge over a branch of the Northeast Cape Fear River on Rones Chapel Road in Duplin County, less than a half mile east of the Mount Olive town limits.

Rones Chapel Road, a main traffic artery into town from the Rones Chapel area of Duplin County, becomes East James Street as it crosses into Wayne County. The street continues into town, past Town Hall and through downtown before crossing North Breazeale Avenue (U.S. 117 Alternate).

The project was let to contract on May 16 to S&C Construction of Wilmington. The contract bid price is $617,517.63. Work can begin as soon as July 8. The contract completion date is Feb. 14.

The detour route (south to north) is Rones Chapel Road (Secondary Road 1104) to N.C. 403 to Graham Road (Secondary Road 1558) in Duplin County becoming Kelly Springs Road (Secondary Road 1937) in Wayne County to N.C. 55 to North Church Street (Secondary Road 1969) and back to East James Street (Wayne County)/Rones Chapel Road (Duplin County).

NEWPORT – The N.C. Department of Transportation will close turn lanes on U.S. 70 at the intersection of Howard Boulevard and Nine Foot Road on Monday and Tuesday nights. This work is part of a project to upgrade the intersection for pedestrian crossings.

The left turn lanes from U.S. 70 (both directions) onto Nine Foot Road and Howard Boulevard will be closed from Monday, July 1 at 7 p.m. until Tuesday, July 2 at 6 a.m.

The right turn lanes from U.S. 70 (both directions) onto Nine Foot Road and Howard Boulevard will be closed the same hours overnight Tuesday.

Drivers from either direction can get around the closures by continuing through the intersection, and then using the nearby turnarounds to turn left and head back to either Howard Boulevard or Nine Foot Road.
Also, there’s an upcoming road closure at UNC-Pembroke due to construction in the area. A video rendering of the project is in the press release.

SELMA – Ricks Road in Johnston County will be closed to through traffic for about two weeks starting July 15 to allow the CSX Corp. to reconstruct its railroad crossing.

The signed detour will take drivers on U.S. 70 and U.S. 301. Ricks Road in Selma is a popular shortcut for both highways.

The closure dates could change based on inclement weather or the CSX contractor schedule. Updates on the closure and the detour will posted at DriveNC.gov as they become available. At the top of that web page, type “Johnston County” and scroll down for a list of local closures.

The N.C. Department of Transportation is widening the road. The project will add a middle turn lane and concrete curbs and gutters. As part of the project, CSX will replace and extend its railroad crossing over Ricks Road.

The $3.6 million widening project is on pace to be completed and opened to traffic by this fall.
