Construction to extend the C.F. Harvey Parkway north of Kinston is complete and the section of roadway is expected to open Monday. The N.C. Department of Transportation said in a news release that the extension of this highway began in 2018 and is opening to traffic six months ahead of schedule. The Parkway has been extended by nearly 6 miles from N.C. 58 to N.C. 11.  The $80 million dollar project improves connectivity to areas that include the Global TransPark, the U.S. 70 Industrial Park, and East Carolina University Medical Center.
