KINSTON – A Lenoir County junction is scheduled to close permanently on Monday as part of the C.F. Harvey Parkway Extension project.
The N.C. Department of Transportation plans to close access to Humphrey Road from N.C. 58 at 8 a.m. on Feb. 24. NCDOT contractors will construct a cul-de-sac at the end of Humphrey Road near N.C. 58.
There will be no detour, but traffic is recommended to use Taylor Heath Road as an alternate route to connect from Hugo Road to N.C. 58 for access to C.F. Harvey Parkway/N.C. 148. Humphrey Road will remain accessible for local traffic from Hugo Road.
By extending C.F. Harvey Parkway by 5.8 miles, connectivity will improve in northern Kinston between U.S. 70, N.C. 58 and N.C. 11. The $73.5 million project is expected to be substantially complete in 2021.
