C.F. Harvey Parkway Extension

Kingston, NC

Branch delivered the C.F. Harvey Parkway Extension Project to the North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) under budget and 209 days ahead of schedule on February 4, 2021.

The 5.8-mile limited access highway Project from NC 58 to NC 11 comprised of:

  • Seven sets of dual bridges (14 bridges total).
  • Approximately 3,800,000 cubic yards of borrow.
  • 43,000 cubic yards of undercut excavation.
  • 32,000 linear feet of storm drain piping.
  • 250,000 tons of asphalt.
  • Community Value.

This Project improves connectivity in northern Kinston between US 70, NC 58, and NC 11. Adjacent regional and area activity centers that benefit from this Project include the North Carolina Global TransPark (NCGTP), the US 70 Industrial Park, and industrial facilities along NC 11. Particular points of interest northeast of Kinston include Greenville, East Carolina University Medical Center, and other communities. To ensure future development advances the long-term goals for the area, Lenoir County created an area plan around the new Parkway to increase interest in this part of the County.

Our approach to engage and use locally-owned businesses and local labor during construction includes much of the same commitments that have resulted in our other successful projects for NCDOT. Our team remained dedicated to welcoming the area’s residents into our workforce during the construction of this critical roadway. More than 100 people were on the Project at the height of construction, many from Lenoir County. Our team also exceeded the NCDOT mandated Disadvantaged Business Enterprise requirement by hosting outreach events to make the community aware of job opportunities.
