The project logo R-2553: Kinston Bypass

Preliminary engineering activities for this project
have resumed.


The proposed Kinston Bypass would be a four-lane, median divided freeway (accessible via ramps at interchanges) that extends approximately 22 miles from U.S. 70 near La Grange (in Lenoir County) to U.S. 70 near Dover (on the Jones-Craven county line). Currently 12 Alternative Corridors are being evaluated.
