GREENVILLE – As the N.C. Department of Transportation continues with construction on the Southwest Bypass project, a Pitt County interchange will close for one month starting next week.
Beginning at 7 a.m. on May 20, both lanes of U.S. 264 West will be closed. Crews will replace the approach slabs for the bridge at the Greenville interchange. The project is expected to take one month.
Drivers heading west on U.S. 264 to Stantonsburg Road will instead be detoured to Exit 73A and head towards Mozingo Road, Exit 71. They will exit at that location, turn left at the end of the ramp, cross over U.S. 264 and turn left onto U.S. 264 East toward Stantonsburg Road.
Drivers should anticipate needing extra time for their commute and approach the work zone with caution.
