TRAFFIC ALERT: Road closures due to project to bring U.S. 70 up to interstate standards


Officials have announced road closures in Craven County due to a project to bring U.S. 70 up to interstate standards. 

According to Craven County officials, Cove City Eastbound Entrance and Exit Ramps closed Thursday at 7 a.m.

The eastbound entrance and exit ramps for N.C. 41 will be closed until Friday at 7 p.m. 

To access N.C. 41 from U.S. 70 East, traffic will continue past the exit for about seven miles and exit at Tuscarora Rhems Road.

At the stop sign, turn left and cross U.S. 70, returning to U.S. 70 west until N.C. 41 exit.

For traffic wanting to get to U.S. 70 East, drivers will use the entrance ramp to U.S. 70 West, drive 8.5 miles and turn left at the crossover at Dover Road and continue to U.S. 70 East.

The work is part of a larger project to bring U.S. 70 up to interstate standards.

Crews are widening shoulders, as well as milling and repaving the highway, which will be renamed I-42.

The project in its entirety is 32 miles long and costs $25.5 million.
