The North Carolina Department of Transportation is planning to make Improvements to U.S. 70 in New Bern/James City. The intended project is a 2.5 mile long stretch between Garner Road to the Neuse Rive Bridge with the overall goal of improving traffic flow in this area.
While this may be seen as a positive improvement for some, others are not as enthusiastic about the project taking place. Several business owners will have to relocate, and others will have to change the entrance locations to their businesses.
Additionally, while the Senior Transportation Planning Engineer Craig Young said the state “is doing all it could to avoid impacting private homes,” there still could be some affected.
Right of way acquisition and construction for this project is scheduled to begin in 2021. Currently, there are 4 design plans that include alternatives for interchanges along US 70 to either be above or below current grade. The project is estimated to cost $66 million and construction is expected to take up to five years.
