U.S. 70 re-opens in Carteret County after deputies “investigate a situation”

CARTERET COUNTY, N.C. (WITN) – A portion of a busy highway in Carteret County is open once again to all traffic after “deputies investigate a situation.”

U.S. 70 was shut down in both directions between McCabe Road and the intersection of Highway 24, just outside of Morehead City.

People were told to avoid the area, if possible.

The highway was shut down for more than an hour but was allowed to reopen just before 3:00 p.m.
