Raleigh - To allow the workers to safely place girders for a new bridge over U.S. 70, the N.C. Department of Transportation will close a section of U.S. 70 near Pine Level in Johnston County overnight starting Tuesday, Nov. 1.
Beginning at 10 p.m., the highway will be closed nightly until 6 a.m. the following morning, between I-95 and Davis Mill/Stevens Chapel Road until mid-November. Traffic will be rerouted onto U.S. 70 Alternate around the closure.
The construction is part of a project to improve safety along a two-mile stretch of U.S. 70, and includes converting the intersections at Davis Mill Road/Stevens Chapel Road and near Woods Road/U.S. Business to interchanges.
