The 12 mile stretch of highway 306 that connects the towns of Grantsboro, Arapahoe, and Minnesott Beach, will soon be bigger and better with new paving, strengthening, and widening.  306 is right in front of Arlington Place and we have put up with the bumps, cracks and patches for long enough…..though it has been pretty good for putting the baby to sleep.  A wider 306 will certainly be welcome news to the many cyclists that love to bike through our area.  The project should take a couple of months and a completion date of November 15th is already on the books. Then it’ll be smooth sailing to New Bern (highway 55 was repaved and widened to 5 lanes a couple of years ago.)  Check out this article in the New Bern Sun Journal for the whole story – http://www.newbernsj.com/articles/paving-107459-major-project.html.
