I saw them today. I wasn’t sure what it was though.

I think it is a great gesture but couldn’t they run on the service road where available. On the way to NB it looked like an accident just waiting to happen.

Okay. I did not see the torch.

Saw some runners today!!! Wanted to wave but thought I may disturb them. Good Luck

When will Havelock run?

ST Wooten will be continuing overnight construction work on US 70. Lane closures are set for both east-bound and west-bound lanes beginning at 9:00 PM and are to be removed by 4:00 AM. During this time, one lane east-bound and one west-bound will remain open for traffic.
This week, ST Wooten will begin overnight installation of bridge girders over US 70. During this time, there will be a change in the traffic pattern. Single lane, two way traffic will run side-by-side on the same side of Highway 70. East-bound MacDonald Downs residents will not be permitted to make a U-turn at Slocum Road to enter the residential area. MacDonald Downs residents must make a U-turn at Catawba Road to gain access via west-bound lanes, as a U-turn is not authorized at the Walmart intersection. ST Wooten will be coordinating with the Havelock Police Department for assistance during this work. In addition to lane closures during girder installation, the contractor may completely close the road for up to 30 minutes to perform work that would be unsafe for the traffic to drive under or around.
1. 5/21/19 – 5/22/19 Tuesday Night through Wednesday Morning – 8:30 PM – 4:00 AM 
2. 5/28/19 – 5/29/19 Tuesday Night through Wednesday Morning – 8:30 PM – 4:00 AM 
3. 5/29/19 – 5/30/19 Wednesday Night through Thursday Morning – 8:30 PM – 4:00 AM

I’m curious why that very large piece, I’m assuming is a girder was being moved when I came home today. I was very surprised to see that large peice slowly being moved and hanging over 70 while traffic was flowing. The dirt on the ramp on slocum was just falling as they were moving. Seems dangerous to me. 🙄

When will the road connecting McDonald Downs and Tucker Creek be completed? And why are we not being updated on its progress? For those of us that live in McDonald Downs it is way more than an inconvenience issue. It is a huge safety issue. There have been a handful of accidents and numerous close calls while having to make the u turn at the light by the fire house as well as Slocum road. This is because traffic from apposing directions are allowed to turn right on red and are not yielding to u-turn traffic even when they have the green light and right of way.

Shouldn't #1 be: 5/21/19 – 5/22/19 Tuesday Night through Wednesday Morning – 8:30 PM – 4:00 AM
