Pitt County intersection becomes all way stop today

PITT COUNTY, N.C. (WITN) – An intersection here in the east is being converted to an all-way stop Wednesday.

The North Carolina State Transportation crews will change the traffic pattern at the intersection of Old Tar Road and Ayden Gold Club Road this morning.
