 The Craven County Comprehensive Transportation Plan includes roadway, rail, public transportation and bicycle and pedestrian improvements for the county. On Wednesday (Sept. 29), a public workshop will be held at the Craven County Cooperative Extension Building in New Bern from 4pm to 7pm. According to a news release from the Down East Rural Planning Organization, the public's input is vital in developing a plan that meets the future needs of Craven County. Transportation recommendations include improvement to the Alfred A. Cunningham Bridge in New Bern and a Vanceboro bypass. Maps of the recommended improvements will be available at the meeting and at the Craven County Planning Office in New Bern. For Public Radio East, I'm Meredith Radford.
