GOLDSBORO – A $17.3 million contract awarded Monday by the N.C. Department of Transportation will improve a complicated Goldsboro intersection and build a new route to connect U.S. 13 and North Oak Forest Road.
The project is intended to improve the operating capacity and safety of the intersection.
As part of the contract, Central Heights Road will be shifted to the north side of the railroad tracks, and a new service road will be built to maintain access to businesses and homes on the south side of the railroad.
Barnhill Contracting Co. of Rocky Mount may begin construction between April and July of next year. Once begun, the improvements will take a little over two years to complete.
