Some Bridges Closed As Neuse River Rises

Moderate flooding is occurring across Wayne County. Since last week’s downpours, the Neuse River has risen steadily and is now in moderate flood stage.  According to Tuesday’s 2 PM update from the National Weather Service, the Neuse River near Goldsboro is just shy of 22 feet, and the river is expected to crest sometime Wednesday or Thursday shy of 23 feet.  According to Wayne County Government, several bridges in the county have been closed due to the rising river levels, including Arrington Bridge Road, Ferry Bridge Road, Stevens Mill Road, and Caps Bridge Road.  The latest road closures can be found at the NCDOT’s Travel Information website.

    Heads up, Goldsboro and Kinston! The Army Corps of Engineers has been releasing extra water from the dam at Falls Lake in Raleigh since this past weekend, on through this week. So expect these bridges to be closed at least through the weekend. Link:
