Is a portion of Hwy 43 in Craven County slowly collapsing or sinking?

Do any of you regularly travel Hwy 43 south of Vanceboro, where is called Weyerhaeuser Rd? I've travelled it twice this year, months apart. The first time was at night, thought maybe I was seeing things in the dark. I drove on it twice today. It seems to me that, in several spots for maybe half of a mile, the northbound lane appears to sinking or collapsing towards the creek, especially at the curves. I don't think it's just a matter uneven pavement. I know those log trucks bring some heavy weight to the asphalt. Perhaps the ground around the creek is too soft for industrial loads?

Any regular travellers of the area notice this?

Here's the area in the pic, though you can't see any issues from overhead. It's very visible from behind the wheel.

Typical of roadways built on fill. The answer is yes.

Was happening on the Causeway between Wilmington and Leland as well before the widening project fixed it.

Northbound lane, at and around the curve, approaching Swift Creek. I dropped a pin on Google maps. This is the best view from there I could get. Looks the genesis of a crater has formed. Driving on it, vehicles dip a bit towards the shoulder when you drive into it, then pops up a little coming out of it.

Is this project really needed?
