Road refresh: Communities in the greater Fayetteville area undergo road construction projects

By Staff Report, posted 2 months ago

Growing populations and economies means increased traffic to and from a community's old and new attractions. While navigating roadwork can be a hassle, it is a sign that our communities are developing and improving which remains a positive fact.

Almost 19 miles of roadway in Robeson County will be milled and resurfaced, thanks to a $4.5 million contract awarded in mid November.

Barnhill Contracting Co. of Rocky Mount will repave 4.5 miles of N.C. 41 from N.C. 211 to Tar Heel Road. In addition, a small stretch of West Third Street (N.C. 711) in downtown Pembroke will be repaved.

As part of this contract awarded by the N.C. Department of Transportation, sections of these secondary roads in Robeson County will also be repaved: 

  • University Road
  • Tolarsville Road
  • East Great Marsh Church Road
  • Robert Bessie Road
  • South Walnut Street

The improved roads also will be restriped with high-visibility, thermoplastic lane markings.

Construction is expected to get underway next spring and be completed by the summer of 2025.

Fort Liberty will also undergo several road construction projects that will impact travel to the installation over the next several months. Road construction sites include Chicken Road, King Road and the Manchester Access Control Point.

  • Patrons traveling to Fort Liberty via Chicken Road will be detoured from Macridge Road to Yorktown-Victor and Long Street through February 2024.
  • King Road will be closed starting Nov. 27 and projected through January 2024 for culvert repairs.
  • Manchester Access Control Point closed on Nov. 27 and is projected to be closed through Dec. 15. During this time, patrons will be able to use the Butner Access Control Point.

The current road construction on Fort Liberty is part of an ongoing five-year road construction project plan to improve the failing road conditions.
