Forecast Flooding on Highway 70 at Goldsboro and Kinston has made the usual route to Oriental likely impassable. But it appears there is a way, and it isn’t that much longer. 264 > 17 > 55. That simple. It does pass over a significant body of water – the Pamlico River at Washington. Water levels are a few feet above normal there, but Hwy 17 is high above the river.
While the map shows a Raleigh to Oriental path, adapting it from other points west is easy. Just find US 264, and follow from there.
Update Oct 16 Sun 11a Hwy 264 had a detour Friday – but is now reported clear to pass in both east & west directions.
