Residents celebrate improvements to east Craven road

McCabe said the road used to be better maintained a decade ago, and when he was elected county commissioner in 2006, he became more involved in an effort to improve the road.

Located between Shadyview Beach Road and Temples Point Road in eastern Craven County, Pine Cliff Road had to get added to the state system before work could be done. Houston said that determination came in 2007.

But others steps had to take place before the road could be improved.

"There was some utility work that had to be combined with the work that DOT did, and Commissioner McCabe worked hard to get that funding in place so we could come in here and do our improvements," said Dwayne Alligood, DOT engineer.

About 300 feet of water line and three power lines had to be moved to make way for the road improvements. Beyond that, the residents had to dedicate the necessary right-of-way space free to the state.

The road was added to the state list for secondary road improvement in July of last year.

David Livingston, county maintenance engineer with DOT, said the road had severe ponding before the improvements but now it has proper drainage.
