Highway improvements are coming to Johnston County as work will soon be underway to replace two aging bridges and repave a seven-mile section of I-95 between south of Lizzie Mill Road and the Wilson County line.
The bridges over I-95 at Lizzie Mill Road and Bizzell Grove Church Road will be replaced with longer and wider bridges to accommodate any future widening of I-95.
The current bridges are 61 and 59 years old, respectively, and both are classified as functionally obsolete, meaning that they were built to standards no longer in use.
N.C Department of Transportation has awarded a $53.1 million contract to Fred Smith Co. of Raleigh for the project.
