HAVELOCK – Starting Monday, the N.C. Department of Transportation plans to close lanes on U.S. 70 as work continues to complete the overpass across the highway into Slocum Gate, the main access to Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point.

From July 8 through Sept. 20, east and westbound lanes will close overnight on U.S. 70 in Havelock. Lanes can be closed every night of the week, but crews are restricted to work between 8 p.m. and 4 a.m. These closures are necessary for contract crews to place asphalt, as well as finish the shoulders and overpass.

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.

NEWPORT – Turn lanes at a Carteret County intersection will be closed a few days next week while the pedestrian crossings are upgraded.

Between 7 p.m. July 8 and 6 a.m. July 9, the left turn lanes in both directions of U.S. 70 at the Roberts Road intersection will be closed. Following that work, between 7 p.m. July 9 and 6 a.m. July 10, the right turn lanes in both directions of U.S. 70 at the Roberts Road intersection will be closed.

N.C. Department of Transportation crews will add pedestrian islands to the intersection and replace the signal heads, making it safer for people crossing U.S. 70.

Drivers wanting to access Roberts Road from U.S. 70 West will continue through the intersection and turn left at the next turn around to head back to Roberts Road.

Traffic on U.S. 70 East wanting to access Roberts Road will also continue through intersection, do a U-turn at the stoplight at Hibbs Road to head back onto Roberts Road.

​​​​​​​This work is part of a $605,000 project that is upgrading pedestrian crossing and signals around Newport.

HERTFORD – State transportation contractors will begin driving five concrete piles into the bed of the Perquimans River this week, marking the start of construction for the replacement of the 90-year-old Hertford ‘S-Bridge’.

Once installed, the five piles will be extensively tested to ensure they are strong enough to support the weight of the bridge and are long enough to prevent scour. Once those tests are complete, the new bridge’s remaining piles will be ordered, cast, shipped and installed.

The bridge replacement is part of the N.C. Department of Transportation’s $57 million project to upgrade and improve U.S. Highway 17 Business/N.C. Highway 37 between Hertford and Winfall in northern Perquimans County. Besides the bridge replacement, the project also includes improving the causeway north of the bridge, which has been damaged by settling of the ground underneath it.

McLean Contracting of Chesapeake, Va., was awarded the contract for the project, which is scheduled to be complete in December 2021.

NAVASSA – Nightly lane closures along Interstate 140 will begin next week as the N.C. Department of Transportation continues work to improve communication services at the Traffic Operations Center in Brunswick and New Hanover counties.

On July 15, NCDOT plans to start installing communications cable and conduit along Interstate 140 in Brunswick and New Hanover counties. The project is expected to last until Nov. 30. During the project, there will be approximately two miles of intermittent lane closures, rotating east and westbound, on the Cape Fear River Bridge near Navassa.

Weekly closures will occur between 7 p.m. and 6 a.m. Monday through Friday to minimize traffic delays.

Earlier this year, communications cable and conduit was installed on I-140 for about nine miles between U.S. 17 Business and I-40.

​These installations will allow NCDOT Traffic Services to monitor, maintain and assist traffic along the interstate. Closed circuit cameras and message boards will be linked to the Traffic Operations Center in Castle Hayne.

Seems a bit overkill for both options. We're talking about getting rid of at least 15 buildings, with at least half of this looking like a 55 MPH freeway entrance up to 17 Bus. If anything just widen Colvin/Montgomery and then make a ramp entrance of US 74. I don't see why bridges are needed at all. Just make it similar to how Greenville made Regency Blvd. I mean yet building would still go, but not as much.
