Preliminary engineering activities for this project have been temporarily suspended.
Planning and development are underway on a proposed project to widen approximately 2.3 miles of Allen Road from two lanes to a four-lane, median-divided roadway from Stantonsburg Road to Dickinson Avenue Extension (U.S. 13) in Greenville.
Proposed improvements include upgrading the intersections at Allen and Stantonsburg roads and Allen Road and Dickinson Avenue Extension, as well as installing bicycle lanes and possibly sidewalks.
The proposed project would improve traffic flow and safety on Allen Road. The roadway is nearing its capacity, meaning that it can no longer handle the amount of daily traffic. The project would also help provide for the projected traffic growth.
This project is listed as Project U-5875 in the
N.C. Department of Transportation's State Transportation Improvement Program and is funded for $25.4 million. The cost is estimated and subject to change.
