C.F. Harvey Parkway Extension

Project Overview and Purpose

The N.C. Department of Transportation wants to extend C.F. Harvey Parkway (N.C. 148) from N.C. 58 to N.C. 11 north of Kinston to improve connectivity in northern Kinston between U.S. 70, N.C. 58 and N.C. 11.

Adjacent regional and area activity centers in the area that would benefit from improved connectivity include Global TransPark, the U.S. 70 Industrial Park and industrial facilities along N.C. 11 – and points of interest northeast of Kinston – including Greenville, East Carolina University Medical Center and other communities.

Project Highlights

The C.F. Harvey Parkway extension would be a four-lane, median divided freeway with full-control access – meaning vehicles would only be able to get on the freeway at interchanges at N.C. 58 and N.C. 11.

The two options, also known as alternatives, are being considered and both begin at the intersection of C.F. Harvey Parkway (N.C. 148) and N.C 58 and extend onto a new location to N.C. 11. (See project study area map).

  • Alternative 1 is approximately 4 miles long and intersects with N.C. 11 slightly north of the N.C. 55 and N.C. 11 intersection.
  • Alternative 2 (recommended by NCDOT) is approximately 6.5 miles long and intersects with N.C. 11 near the Grainger Station Road and N.C. 11 intersection.

Project Updates

Environmental Assessment Complete

NCDOT completed the state Environmental Assessment and submitted it to the N.C. State Environmental Review Clearinghouse for public review and comment on June 30, 2016. The Environmental Assessment documented the anticipated impacts to the environment from the project and resulted in a Finding of No Significant Impact. The assessment and the associated appendices are available below for review.

Based on this analysis, NCDOT is recommending Alternative 2.

Resources for Local Property Owners

In many cases, it is inevitable that a certain amount of private property must be acquired. The displacement of homes and businesses is minimized to the extent practicable. The following brochures will answer questions about this process.
