N.C. Department of Transportation continues construction on a major Lenoir County project that will extend a road, improving connectivity north of Kinston.
The work will require the closure sections of two roads, one next week and the other the following week, as part of the C.F. Harvey Parkway extension project.
Starting Monday at 8 a.m., NCDOT will permanently close Hamilton Road in both directions as crews construct the four-lane freeway.
This is the area where the parkway extension will cross the road.
There will be turnarounds built at both sides of this closure.
A second closure will be on Wallace Family Road.
It will begin on April 15 at 8 a.m. and last through 5 p.m. April 19.
That closure is needed so crews can safely place concrete bridge girders for a new overpass.
During this week, drivers will be detoured onto Tilghman Mill Road, N.C. 58, Hugo Road and Elmore Farms Road.
The C.F. Harvey Parkway extension will be a four-lane, median-divided freeway with full-control access, which will connect drivers to N.C. 58 and N.C. 11. It is expected to be substantially complete in 2021, with final completion in 2022.
