Project Overview and Purpose
The N.C. Department of Transportation proposes widening approximately 1.1 miles of 14th Street in Greenville from Red Banks Road to Fire Tower Road to a four-lane median divided roadway.
Once complete, the project would help improve traffic flow and safety as well as accommodate future traffic growth along the project corridor.
Proposed work includes widening 14th Street in each direction – from Red Banks Road to Fire Tower Road – with two through lanes in each direction divided by a median.
Design concepts, some of which include bike lanes and sidewalks, are under development.
Environmental planning work on the project began in March 2017.
Widening 14th Street was originally proposed in the 2004 Greenville Urban Area Thoroughfare Plan, which the N.C. Department of Transportation adopted in February 2005.
The Greenville Urban Area 2014-2040 Long Range Transportation Plan also recommends widening the existing two-lane roadway from Red Banks to Fire Tower Road and ranks it as the ninth highest priority in Pitt County.
The N.C. Department of Transportation is holding the following meeting to answer questions and receive comments from the public on the proposed work to widen 14th Street in Greenville:

Resources for Local Property Owners
Although the N.C. Department of Transportation works to minimize the number of homes and businesses displaced by a road project, it is inevitable, in many cases, that a certain amount of private property is needed. The following information explains right of way acquisition and answers questions about the process.
