Neuse Boulevard Paving Delayed Again

Paving work on Neuse Boulevard in New Bern has been delayed once again.

It was a couple of weeks ago that Department of Transportation officials told us the paving would start Monday, July 21st.

The road that has been torn up for awhile now after new water lines were installed. That work was completed last year.

Now we're told the paving won't start until next Monday, July 28th, because Barnhill Contracting is finishing up a couple of other jobs that have been delayed due to rainy weather.

The $1.48-million project is supposed to be finished by the end of October.
