The proposed Kinston Bypass would reduce traffic congestion and delays that exist along a 20-mile segment of U.S. 70 between LaGrange and Dover in Lenoir, Jones and Craven counties while also helping regional travel.
U.S. 70 from I-40 to Morehead City is designated as a Strategic Transportation Corridor, which means it plays a critical role in regional and statewide travel. As a Strategic Transportation Corridor, this portion of U.S. 70 is classified as a freeway. The project would help reduce traffic congestion and delays that exist along U.S. 70 between LaGrange and Dover.
This project is listed as Project R-2553 in the
N.C. Department of Transportation's State Transportation Improvement Program and is funded for $379 million.
