Affected Counties: Pitt
Estimated Cost: $ 53,606,000
The North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) plans to widen Evans Street/Old Tar Road, a 3.8-mile stretch that connects Greenville and Winterville. From the intersection of Cooper Street and Worthington Road in Winterville, to Greenville Boulevard in Greenville the road will become a four-lane highway with a raised median, bicycle lanes, and sidewalks.
The purpose of the project is to help decrease traffic congestion in this growing area and alleviate safety concerns, particularly for bicyclists and pedestrians.
