Traffic Update - Jan. 29, 2018
TRAFFIC UPDATE: The Town of Beaufort has had several discussions with NCDOT reps to help mitigate the traffic back-ups. (Please note some of the changes will not be in effect until the end of the day on Jan. 30, 2018.)
Here’s what has been agreed upon:
1. Modifications to signal phasing and timing at the intersection of NC101 and US70. This has been completed and has helped some.
2. Live Oak (former HW70) eastbound will be reopened at Shell Landing to relieve some of the congestion at intersections of Live Oak and NC101, and at NC101 and HW70.
3. A right only turn lane will be added to US70 eastbound at the intersection with NC101, toward Beaufort.
4. The signal phasing will be changed for eastbound traffic on Live Oak to allow a protected or separate left movement onto NC101.
Items 2, 3 and 4 are expected to begin tomorrow and be completed before the end of business that day.
