NCDOT Working with Seymour Johnson Air Force Base to Improve Traffic in Goldsboro

RALEIGH - Traffic is about to improve for motorists leaving Seymour Johnson Air Force Base in Goldsboro. Starting the week of November 11th, the N.C. Department of Transportation will begin construction of a second left-turn lane from northbound Oak Forest Road to U.S. 70, east of the U.S. Air Force base in Goldsboro. The project, which is estimated to cost $350,000, is being done by SELCO Construction of Smithfield and is scheduled to be completed by mid-December, weather permitting.The additional left-turn lane was requested by Seymour Johnson Air Force Base to ease westbound traffic on Oak Forest Road that is currently backing up from the intersection as far back as Ashe Street when shifts change at the base.There will be minimal impact to traffic on U.S. 70 during construction. Occasional lane closures will be necessary on Oak Forest Road. NCDOT will work with officials from Seymour Johnson Air Force Base to make sure that no lane closures are in place during times when shifts are changing and traffic is traditionally heavy.Motorists are advised to use caution while traveling in the area and to expect delays. NCDOT reminds motorists to watch signs for construction information, stay alert and obey the posted speed limit.
