14th Street Widening
NCDOT TIP # U-5917
Project Type: Road widening
Affected Counties: Pitt
Estimated Cost: $ 12,610,000
The North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) plans to widen a 1.4-mile stretch of 14th Street from Red Banks Road to Fire Tower Road in Greenville. The project is intended to improve traffic flow, accommodate future traffic growth, and alleviate safety issues.
Changes include widening 14th Street to a four-lane roadway divided by a median, with two through lanes in each direction from Red Banks Road to Fire Tower Road. New bike lanes and sidewalks will also be added.
Numerous homeowners will be impacted by this project because a number of local neighborhood entrances and exits face 14th Street. Some residents have protested this project fearing that it will affect their property values.
