LENOIR COUNTY (WITN) -A busy intersection in Lenoir County is getting a safety makeover.

The North Carolina Department of Transportation says drivers can no longer cross over U.S. 70 at the Kennedy Home and Eason roads intersection between Kinston and La Grange.

Vehicles also will not be able to make left turns onto U.S. 70 from either side of the road.

The work, which began Monday, is expected to continue through May 27, but lane closures will not happen on Fridays, Saturdays, or Sundays.

Orange barrels now prevent drivers from crossing at the intersection until more permanent barriers are built.
