Progress on Kinston's Queen Street improvements

KINSTON, NC (WITN) - Construction is ongoing in Kinston as crews are working to give one busy street a facelift.

Crews waited out the hard rains so they could get back to work on the project Monday.

Leon Steele with Pride of Kinston said the crews are ahead of schedule due to the lack of rain since the project began back in the middle of May.

When it is finished, city leaders say there will be more parking spaces and the road will be cut down to two lanes of traffic instead of four.
