NEW BERN, N.C. (WNCT)- City officials in New Bern plan to open the Third Avenue Extension early Thursday.
The project, nearly a year in the making, extends Third Avenue northward about 200 feet. That creates a driveway and sidewalks from the intersection at Cedar Street into the parking lot at Stanley White Recreation Center.
The city will celebrate the project’s completion Thursday with a ribbon cutting. It starts at 9:30 a.m. on the eastern side of the road.
