Improvements coming to U.S. 70 in Lenoir County
Two sections of U.S. 70 in Lenoir County will soon undergo a $3 million overhaul.
The N.C. Department of Transportation says crews will mill, resurface and reconstruct shoulders along 8.5 miles of roadway. The two areas are the highway between the bridge over Bear Creek to the bridge over Falling Creek, and between east of Sanderson Way and Mt. Vernon Park Drive.
Work will begin as early as July 5, and is scheduled to be completed by next March. Drivers should expect some lane closures, but no detours are planned.
