There are a few road construction projects drivers in Pitt County may want to take note of.
Through June 6, the Department of Transportation says part of Portertown Rd. near Eastern Pines is closed. They are working on repairing a bridge there.
From June 2 through June 6, the Department of Transportation crews plan to replace a pipe on Vernon White Rd. in Winterville near the intersection of Old Tar Rd. There will be a 2.5 mile detour in place.
The project that might cause the most disruptions begins on June 9. Crews will set up a five-mile detour on N.C. 43 between Calico and Chicod. The Department of Transportation says they will replace a bridge. That process is expected to take one month.
