Highway 11 Closing Next Week For Rail Crossing Work

Relief may soon be coming to drivers who for years have felt the jolt of a railroad crossing on a major highway here in Eastern Carolina.

The Department of Transportation says the Highway 11 crossing at Graingers in Lenoir County will be replaced next week.

But to do that will come with some inconvenience. Jamie Ingram with the DOT says Highway 11 will be closed for at least three days while the work is being done. The plan is to close the four-lane highway October 24th, 25th and 26th while crews put in new railroad ties and repave the much traveled crossing.

During the construction on Highway 11 drivers will encounter a detour.

    I wouldn't hold your breathe on it being any smoother. I'd day they have about a 25% success rate on that.

    I think WITN should find out about when this will happen to the crossing near the UPS hub by Peadens... THIS ONE IS HORRIBLE! Been that way for YEARS too.
