The North Carolina Department of Transportation will have intermittent lane closures on Dan Owen Drive and SR 1570 (Factory Rd) in Pender County (rotating East and West bound lanes) beginning Friday February 9, 2018 through Monday May 28, 2018 (8:00am – 5:00pm Mon – Fri) to construct the new alignment connection between Dan Owen Road and SR 1570 (Factory Rd).
One lane will remain open to traffic at all times on SR 1570 (Factory Road).
This work is part of the original Hampstead Median Project and has been accelerated to enhance safety along US 17 between NC 210 and SR 1570 (Factory Road). “Safety is a top priority with NCDOT, said Resident Engineer Trevor Carroll and by separating this portion out of the project it has accelerated the Dan Owen Connection by 7 years”.
The NCDOT reminds motorists to STAY ALERT, use alternate routes when possible during this period, drive with caution, obey the posted speed limits, and allow extra travel time.
For additional information regarding the dates and times of this lane closure, please visit http://www.ncdot.gov and click on “Travel & Maps” then, click on “Traveler Information Management System” and use the dropdown menus for county or route, or call “511” from any phone.
