Work begins on 8-mile section of N.C. 43 north of New Bern
Drivers using an 8-mile section of N.C. 43 north of New Bern will encounter daytime lane closures and delays starting this week while crews resurface the highway.
A contractor will mill away the old asphalt and lay new pavement on the two-lane highway between N.C. 55 and U.S. 17.
Where the work is being done, there will be one direction of traffic at a time.
Work on the heavily traveled highway is underway and it will take until mid-November to be completed.
Drivers should expect delays, use caution in the work zone and be alert for workers and equipment.
