Construction of a new affordable housing complex on Carolina Avenue is progressing on schedule and is set to be completed in October, according to Tharesa Lee, interim executive director of the New Bern Housing Authority.
Lee said construction crews are currently installing foundation slabs and plumbing for the Carolina Avenue Apartments project.
“It’s going really good. In 43 days we’ve only had 3.83 inches of rain and for eastern North Carolina that’s pretty good, so we’ve been able to get a lot of work in. It takes a while to build a complex of this magnitude,” said Lee.
