When will U.S. 17 repaving near Shallotte be finished, and why not repave milled roadway immediately?

Ken Little

Q. When will paving be finished on U.S. 17 at the Shallotte entrance? And why is the construction company that’s doing the road work on U.S. 17 in Shallotte removing the top layer of roadway and not immediately repaving it like they are doing on U.S. 17 in Leland?

A. The contract included milling sections of U.S. 17 Business in Shallotte and U.S. 17 from the entrance to Shallotte 7.75 miles north towards Bolivia, said Wayne Currie, N.C. Department of Transportation Division 3 resident construction engineer.

The paving in Shallotte is completed, Currie said.

“There is only about 2.7 miles of northbound U.S. 17 milled out at this time. It will be repaved in sections about the same size until the entire four-lane section is completed,” he said “No more pavement will be milled until paving begins on the area previously milled.”


When will the paving on U.S. 17 near Shallotte be completed?  

Why did DOT only partially repave parts of U.S. 17 and U.S. 74/76 in northern Brunswick?
