UPDATE: Davenport Farm Road Construction Is Finished

Davenport Farm Road in Winterville is now back open. The NC DOT says the road re-opened Saturday evening after weeks of work that were hampered by rain.

The only work left is painting new lines on the road, which is expected to take place this week, according to the DOT. The road will not need to be closed for the lane painting; officials say they will use flaggers to direct traffic.

All of the recent rain has turned a two-week road repair project into a month-long ordeal in Pitt County.

When Davenport Farm Road in Winterville was closed in June, the NCDOT planned to complete repairs in two phases, but have had only four workdays without rain.

Weather permitting, the road should reopen next week.
