Kinston Bypass

Project R-2553C
Type: 4-Lane Divided Freeway on New Location
Affected Counties: Craven, Jones, Lenoir

Kinston Bypass is intended to reduce the traffic congestion that currently exists along a 20-mile stretch of U.S. 70 between LaGrange and Dover.

There are currently 12 design options being evaluated for this project which range from 21 miles to 25 miles. All of the designs are four-lane median-divided freeways which would only allow access to the roadway at interchanges.

Right of way acquisition for the project is set to begin in 2026.
