When are they going to finish paving Blue Banks Loop Road?

Ken Little

The N.C. Department of Transportation “is in the process of developing a contract for paving the soil section of Blue Banks Loop Road,” but has to wait for weather restrictions to be lifted, N.C. DOT spokeswoman Tammy Stewart said.

The northern section of Blue Banks Loop Road was paved last year, Stewart said.

“The remaining portion is set to be milled this year and possibly overlaid with a treatment the following year, but all of this is budget-permitting,” she said.

N.C. DOT-maintained roads receive ratings ranging from a high of 100 to a low of 0, and Blue Banks Loop Road currently has a rating of between 86 and 94, Stewart said.

“Obviously, there are other roadways that have a lower rating within the county and will require attention prior to this one,” she said.
