Does anybody know what the hold up is with the Havelock Bypass? The project page still lists construction as starting in February 2019, but so far the contract still hasnít been awarded. Thereís been no mention of it in the news and the US-70 Corridor Commission still hasnít posted the minutes of their November meeting, so no luck there either. :hmm:

As for the Kinston Bypass, the project page lists the preferred alternative being selected in February 2019, but thereís been nothing on that.
According to this document, the Havelock Bypass project was withdrawn from the Feb. 19th letting and will instead be let on March 19, no reason is given:

Also NCDOT has not released the new 2019-2020 State Transportation Map yet, but since the last one wasn't released until May, I guess it can't be called late.

Maybe they realized I-42 comes first in the signage, then US 70, or the old road should be US-70, not US-70 Business ;-)

But honestly, who knows why.

Who knows. At minimum they could've swapped the I-42 and US 70 shield locations to properly match how it should be, with I-42 first, and US 70 last, not the other way around.

But I doubt it.

A quick look at the sign plans attached to the March letting showed no changes to the sign plans, nor were the exit numbers, which duplicate those on US 70 west of New Bern, revised.

More likely, a contractor asked for an extension to complete their bid or something to that effect.

NCDOT posted a letter to the document page for the Havelock Bypass project explaining the pulling of the project from the March letting was due to needed extra time to get all the permits needed for construction:

I'd say the majority, not all of I-42 will be ready by 2030, signed, that's a different story.

https://www.ncdot.gov/news/press-releases/Pages/2019/2019-03-22-craven-county-highway-ramp-closure.aspx

Quote
An entrance ramp to a Craven County highway will close early next week as the N.C. Department of Transportation continues work to upgrade the highway to an interstate.

On Monday, weather permitting, the westbound entrance ramp to U.S. 70 at Clarks Road in New Bern will be closed to traffic. If it should rain, crews will work March 26. During the closure, NCDOT will remove the top 2.5Ē of existing asphalt and replace it with 2.5Ē of new asphalt.

Traffic on Clarks Road will be sent eastbound onto U.S. 70 to the N.C. 43 exit. After taking the exit, traffic will drive on the bridge over U.S. 70 and turn left onto the entrance ramp for U.S. 70 West.

The work is part of a larger project to bring U.S. 70 up to interstate standards. Crews are widening shoulders, as well as milling and repaving the highway, which will be renamed Interstate 42. The project in its entirety is 32 miles long and costs $25.5 million.

For real-time travel information, visit DriveNC.gov or follow NCDOT on social media.

I contacted NCDOT a few weeks ago about the wrongly ordered shields on the Havelock Bypass signage. I finally heard back today and they will be revising the signage plans to have the future I-42 space come first. My message may have prompted the change, judging by the wording of the response and the long delay. (I've contacted NCDOT before and they don't usually take two weeks to respond.)

Hopefully, they will be revising the exit numbers as well or they'll have to revise the plans again later on.
