Construction timeline could be affected

A U.S. 70 bypass around Havelock has been in the planning stages since at least 1977. The current estimated cost is $183.4 million.

The final Environmental Impact Statement for the project is due to be released this summer. There are an estimated 16 households and two businesses that would have to be relocated for the 10-mile preferred alternative route. More than 100 acres of wetland are being mitigated for the four-lane divided highway, which will run from just west of Hickman Hills near the Craven County recycling center in front of the old Havelock Building supply store to east of Havelock.
