It's just been announced that Amazon will build a distribution center near this area.

Since that's pretty damn close to the I-42/95 junction, I wonder if there will be expedited planning for that interchange that will result in a finalization of the design, including possible relocation of either route.  With this distribution facility looming (and Amazon doesn't move slowly with these things), time may be of the essence here!

I wonder why they didn't put an APL sign here.

The NCDOT Construction Progress Report has been updated to include the US 70 upgrade project (Contract Number:   C204359) from Business 70 to the Neuse River bridge in Johnston County. Work began on May 12. The current completion date is March 14, 2025. The contract amount is $58,864,002.13. The project distance is 4.978 miles (5 is good enough for me).

The Ghostbuster:
Would it be possible to extend the C.F. Harvey Parkway back south to reconnect to US 70/Future Interstate 42 near Dover? That could potentially become an Interstate 242, as well as provide a full northern bypass of Kinston.
