The NCDOT wants to hear from you on a new bypass project here in the east.
The bypass will be on the southwest side of Havelock and Highway 70. The 4 lane divided highway that extends from north of Havelock to about 10 miles from the Carteret county line will give drivers an alternate route to the heavily congested U.S. 70. If approved, construction will begin in 2015.
The public hearing will be tonight at 6:00pm at the Havelock Tourist and Event Center. The pre-hearing open house starts at 4:30pm.
