Construction Nearly Complete On NC 16 In Catawba County

The N.C. Department of Transportation planned to open all lanes of traffic on N.C. 16 in Catawba County Thursday (October 6) as construction nears completion. The eight-mile project is widening N.C. 16 from a two-lane route to a four-lane divided roadway from Tower Road to Claremont Road south of Newton to improve traffic service for motorists in the area.

The contractor will still be completing some final outstanding work items along the project over the next few months that can be accomplished outside the travel way or under a short-term lane closure. Motorists are urged to use caution and stay alert for workers within the work zone.
