JACKSONVILLE, NC (AP) — Residents of eastern North Carolina have another chance to tell state transportation officials what they think of plans to widen US 17 between New Bern and Jacksonville.

The Daily News of Jacksonville reports that the state Department of Transportation is holding the second of two public hearings on the proposal to widen the highway to four lanes from south of Belgrade to the New Bern bypass in Craven County. The next hearing is scheduled for Tuesday at Pollocksville Elementary School. It includes an open house followed by a formal presentation.

DOT representatives will be on hand to provide information and receive comments from the public.

Plans call for widening a 16-mile stretch of the highway. The project would convert the two-lane road to a four-lane divided highway
