Description

As part of an overall effort to enhance east-west travel and safety along the nearly three-mile section of Fire Tower Road and Portertown Road from N.C. 43 to N.C. 33, the North Carolina Department of Transportation will widen a 2.2-mile stretch of Fire Tower Road and Portertown Road from 14th Street to East 10th Street in Greenville.

The road will be widened from two lanes to four lanes and will include a raised median, bicycle lanes, and sidewalks.

Fire Tower Road currently experiences significant congestion with a higher likelihood for accidents. Widening this stretch of Fire Tower Road and Portertown Road is an effort to help improve traffic flow, minimize crashes, and foster better connectivity in the area and accommodate pedestrians and bicyclists.
