The project logo R-5777C: Havelock Bypass To Thurman Road

The N.C. Department of Transportation is proposing to upgrade a section of US 70 Improvements from the Havelock Bypass to East of S.R. 1116 (Thurman Road) to interstate standards, in Craven County. 

This project is one of several that NCDOT is working on to improve the U.S. 70 corridor with the intent of:

  • Improving regional mobility
  • Assisting economic development in primarily rural areas of eastern N.C.
  • Providing a closer interstate connection to the Port of Morehead City
  • Benefitting military interconnectivity
  • Making the corridor safer by reducing at-grade intersections

Project Highlights:

The project would construct approximately seven (7) miles of freeway, and include interchanges at three locations:

  • Camp Kiro Road (S.R. 1112)
  • Fisher Avenue (S.R. 1104) 
  • Stately Pines Road (S.R. 1106)

​Driveways, intersecting streets and median crossovers would be removed and service roads extended along portions of the project to provide access for property owners and to ensure mobility for local traffic.

RESOURCES FOR PROPERTY OWNERS 


Although the N.C. Department of Transportation works to minimize the number of homes and businesses displaced by a road project,

it is inevitable, in many cases, that a certain amount of private property is needed. The following information explains right of way acquisition and answers questions about the process.
