The Greenville Southwest Bypass Project evaluated possible improvements to the Stantonsburg Road (US 264 Business)/Memorial Drive (NC 11) corridor in Pitt County, southwest of the city of Greenville. The selected alternative for this project consists of a new, 12.4 mile, controlled-access facility that begins at Memorial Drive (NC 11) approximately 2.9 miles south of NC 102 and ends at the existing US264 interchange.

News and Updates

NCDOT has requested interested Design-Build Teams submit qualifications for a Design Build Project that combines all three sections of the project. When the Design-Build contract is awarded, the successful Design-Build Team will finalize the project design and contact property owners affected by the project to begin the right-of-way acquisition process.

The project was formerly divided into three sections:

  • Section A extends from N.C. 11 in Ayden to just south of N.C. 102.
  • Section B is located between N.C. 102 and Forlines Road.
  • Section C is located between Forlines Road and U.S. 264.

Project Overview and Purpose

The purpose of this project is to:

  • Improve traffic flow and congestion on Memorial Drive (NC 11) and Stantonsburg Road (US 264 Business) within the project area;
  • Relieve congestion in Greenville, thereby improving safety and reducing the potential for accidents; and
  • Improve regional travel along the US 264/NC 11 corridor.

Project Highlights

In 2008, NCDOT completed the planning work for the project with the release of the Record of Decision, which provides details about what the selected alternative is and why it was chosen. A public hearing was held in November 2008 to give the public a chance to review the updated project design. The maps that were presented at that public hearing can be found here.

The Final Environmental Impact Statement, completed in December 2007, details all of the alternatives that were studied as part of the project as well as all of the impacts of each alternative.

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.
