​NEW BERN Two highway ramps in Craven County will be closed this week as state transportation crews work to bring the highway up to interstate standards.

On Tuesday, between 6:30 a.m. and 7 p.m., the entrance ramp from Clarks Road to U.S. 70 East and the exit ramp from U.S. 70 East to U.S. 17 will be closed. The ramps will close again during the same times on Wednesday.

N.C. Department of Transportation crews will pave the ramps. The construction is part of the project to bring U.S. 70 up to interstate standards between Raleigh and Morehead City. Crews are widening shoulders and milling and repaving the highway, which will be renamed Interstate 42. The project in Craven County is 32 miles long and costs $25.5 million.

Detours

During construction, Clarks Road traffic needing U.S. 70 East should get on U.S. 70 West and travel about 2.5 miles to the exit for Tuscarora Rhems Road. Drivers will turn left at the stop sign at the top of the ramp, go over the bridge, and make another left to get onto U.S. 70 East.

For drivers on U.S. 70 East needing to get on U.S. 17, stay on U.S. 70 East for about 1 mile to Exit 411 (N.C. 43). Drivers will turn left at the top of the ramp, go over the bridge, turn left onto U.S. 70 West and drive about 1 mile to Exit 410A (U.S. 17 South).

​NEW BERN A highway entrance ramp in Craven County will be closed for about 12 hours on Thursday as work continues to upgrade it to interstate standards.

Between 6:30 a.m. and 7 p.m. Thursday, the U.S. 70 East on-ramp from N.C. 43 will be closed so N.C. Department of Transportation contract crews can safely pave the ramp.

Traffic needing access to U.S. 70 East will go to U.S. 70 West from N.C. 43, drive about two miles to Clark Road (Exit 409), and turn left at the top of the exit ramp to get onto U.S. 70 East.

The construction is part of the project to bring U.S. 70 up to interstate standards between Raleigh and Morehead City. Crews are widening shoulders and milling and repaving the highway, which will be renamed Interstate 42. The project in Craven County is 32 miles long and costs $25.5 million.

I attended the most recent meeting of the Interstate 42 commission in Goldsboro last month.  The meeting lasted about two hours and 95% of time was spent discussing disaster relief and flood mapping.  Unfortunately, in my opinion the meeting focused very little on the Interstate 42 corridor.  If I decide to attend the next meeting, I do hope they post an agenda beforehand.

I can probably guess the answer to this, but was there any mention of when the I-42 signs will go up on the Goldsboro Bypass? NCDOT chief engineer Tim Little told the commission earlier this year that federal approval was given to put up I-42 signs on the bypass, but when I asked NCDOT about the timetable last month, Matt Clarke responded to me and spoke as if the bypass wasn't I-42 yet. :hmm:

I looked on FHWA's interstate logs, but they haven't been updated since December 31, 2018. As I understand it, the I-42 approval for the bypass happened in January.

Good luck with that. The commission has been real lazy about posting minutes and agendas. The last meeting minutes posted was from their January meeting. They've had 3 meetings since then, and absolutely nothing has been posted since July.

There was NO mention of a timeline for when I-42 signs would go up on the Goldsboro bypass.

I figured as much. Thanks for letting me know. I've been keeping up with the local newspapers and they haven't mentioned a word about it, either.

I don't think any of I-42 would be signed until the part of US 70 would be upgraded to interstate standards which is at the western end of the Goldsboro bypass and at the eastern end of the Clayton bypass.
