Signals Change on 701
Updated: Jan 18
Signal lights on U.S. 701 Bypass in Whiteville are transitioning as part of the Super Street project.
Highland Paving activated the new signals today (Jan. 18) at Columbus Street, and deactivating the lights at Virgil Street. The city said the new signals will flash yellow until Jan. 25, when they will be fully activated.
Virgil Street will also close to crossing traffic, and be right turn only from either direction. Right turn and one way signs at Virgil will be erected as part of the change.
The Super Street, also known as a limited access roadway project, will eventually extend from south Whiteville to U.S. 74-76.
