The North Carolina Department of Transportation’s (NCDoT) and US Department of Transportation co-funded projects to install lights and barriers at the Boyd and Liberty Streets level crossings of the CSX right-of-way in Winterville, Pitt Count, have been completed. Likewise, the level crossings at the intersection of Moody Town and Goode Roads and the CSX right-of-way near Marion, McDowell County.
