Rain Hampers Road Project

The relentless daily bouts of rain in Eastern Carolina are causing a holdup for a local road project.

Construction of a new turn lane on Davenport Farm Road started two weeks ago where it intersects with Highway 11 in Winterville.

A small section of the road was affected, and a detour was set up using Forlines Road and Reedy Branch Road.

The project was supposed to be done Friday, but part of the road still needs paved. One lane was open when we checked Monday.
