An Onslow County roadwork project is underway to fix some pipelines.
It’s all part of a multi-year plan between the city of Jacksonville and the North Carolina Department of Transportation.
The Henderson Drive Improvement Project has three phases.
The city of Jacksonville is currently in phase 1, installing some pipelines that city officials say will cause minimal water interruption to homeowners nearby.
“We’ll have to reconnect the existing water surfaces to the residents and during that time there will be interruption in their service but they will be fully aware,” said Andrew Cassell, project manager for the city of Jacksonville.
Phase 2 will ensure everything is in place for phase 3 to repave the road.
One of the end goals is to provide a much smoother ride for drivers in town.
“Having a much more smoother Henderson Drive, which has been anticipated as well as new pavement markings for visualization,” said Cassell.
Cassell adds there will be some minimal traffic delays and change in lanes during the coming months.
The city’s portion of the project is set to cost $1.3 million.
There is no anticipated date as to when Henderson Drive will be complete.
