East Neuse River Construction Equipment

Construction Activity on Poole, Barwell, and Rock Quarry Roads

What you need to know

We Understand Construction Activity is Frustrating

Improving the infrastructure, whether it be roads or the water system can get messy. Along with this mess there is a frustration that can happen when our lives and communities are impacted by construction.

Our projects exist to enhance the community and to ensure that vital services are available both now and in the future.

We have created this page to help navigate construction activity you may see in your area.
