KINSTON – A section of a Lenoir County highway is scheduled to close this weekend as the project to extend C.F. Harvey Parkway continues.
N.C. 11 north of Kinston will be closed in both directions between 7 p.m. Friday and 6 a.m. Monday, weather permitting. During the closure, crews will install concrete bridge girders.
Drivers will use the following detours:
- N.C. 11 North traffic will use Sharon Church, Lafayette and Canady roads.
- N.C. 11 South traffic will follow Canady, Lafayette and Sharon Church roads.
- Traffic leaving Morris Drive or DuPont wanting to go south on N.C. 11 will take the N.C. 11 South detour.
Drivers should expect their commute to take a little extra time and plan accordingly. The N.C. Department of Transportation urges those driving in the area to slow down and use caution.
