One of the primary east-west corridors across eastern North Carolina, U.S. 70 is a major connection between Raleigh, Smithfield, Goldsboro, Kinston, Havelock and the Port of Morehead City. This corridor is heavily used for moving freight, and is just a few miles south of the North Carolina Global TransPark. It also provides vital connections to two military bases just off U.S. 70. U.S. 70 is a major hurricane evacuation route and is also the route many travelers take to the Crystal Coast beaches during the summer. Traffic volumes vary along the corridor but are highest around Clayton and Goldsboro.
As North Carolina car accident injury attorneys we know that many crashes have occurred in this area. This is why the N.C. Department ofTransportation is working to improve passenger and freight movement along the U.S. 70 Corridor from Raleigh to the state Port of Morehead City. Several improvement projects along the corridor are either being studied, in development or under construction.
