The project also includes a portion of Duplin County. Part of the upgrade may involve building new sections of roadway. The existing corridor includes N.C. 403, U.S. 117 Connector, U.S. 117, U.S. 13 and N.C. 581.

The meeting is informal, and people may drop in at any time.
NCDOT representatives will be available to answer questions about the project and gather information about the area surrounding area. There will be no preliminary design maps at the meeting, as NCDOT is still developing the project.

The opportunity to submit comments will also be provided at the meeting or via phone, email, or mail by Dec. 18, 2018.
