Goldsboro Public Meeting On U.S. 117 Improvements Tonight

It’s the Goldsboro area’s turn to weigh in on the plans to upgrade U.S. 117.

The N.C. Department of Transportation is holding a public input meeting from 4 – 7 PM tonight, Monday, Dec. 3, at the Goldsboro Event Center, 1501 S. Slocumb Street.

The public is invited to drop-in anytime during the meeting to view maps and talk to NCDOT representatives about the U.S. 117 improvements.

The NCDOT’s long-range goal is to extend Interstate 795, which now runs between Wilson and Goldsboro, from Goldsboro southward to Interstate 40 near Mount Olive and the Sampson-Duplin county line.

The proposed project may include a combination of upgrading the existing U.S. 117 corridor and building the highway on a new location to minimize impacting homes and businesses.

A similar meeting on the 117 improvements is scheduled for 4 – 7 PM Tuesday, Dec. 4, at the Steele Memorial Library in Mount Olive.

    Does anybody know if the O’Berry Road interchange on US-117 is open yet? NCDOT said it was supposed to be open by the end of November, but now it’s December and there’s still been no mention of it.
