Traffic Alert: Construction On Highway 70 In Havelock

If your morning travels take you through Havelock, a lane closure at a busy intersection may have you choosing an alternate route.

Havelock officials say DOT crews will close a lane at the intersection of Highway 70 and Cunningham Drive starting around 9am Tuesday morning. Officials say you'll still be able to turn right, just not in the usual way.

Crews will be pouring concrete islands. The work should take 1-2 hours.

    Ryan, DOT is not doing this project in the interest of safety. The main purpose of putting the medians back in Havelock and Morehead City is to keep traffic flowing so the good folks from the Triangle can get tot he beach 10 or 15 minutes faster. That is the same reason why the stop lights along the way (at lease in Newport) only allow 2 cars to cross Highway 70 at a time. This is also the reason why DOT will NEVER put a stop light at the Carolina Pines crossover no matter how many accidents there are.

    Dear NCDOT, Thank you very much for the media that has cost not only the taxpayers of this great State, but the business owners of Havelock huge sums! Also, thank you for continuing to ignore the the real problem, the source of a large portion of the accident data you have on the East end of Highway 70, at the Carolina Pines access just West of Havelock. Yet another accident this morning. How many more must die on that crossover before you boneheads realize that the median in Havelock wasn't needed at all but that a stop light at the Carolina Pines crossover would, with out a doubt, save lives! WITN, how about doing some "Investigative Reporting" on how many accidents occur each month there and why the DOT won't put in a stop light. (clue.. minimum 3-4 accidents a month on this crossover)
