The alternative route it is located farther from residential areas, as it parallels a Progress Energy Carolinas electric transmission line east of Fayetteville. Spokesperson for Duke Energy Tammie McGee.

This week on the Down East Journal, we speak to an eastern North Carolina based scientist who is part of a research project aimed at changing federal regulations surrounding the harvest of oysters in our state.
