Stantonsburg Road/Tenth Street Connector
Project # U-3315
Type: Connecting Highway
Affected Counties: Pitt
Estimated Cost: $46.4 million (Funded)
The project will provide a direct connection from Stantonsburg Road and Tenth Street, beginning at Memorial Drive and ending at Evans Street (SR 1702). The connector will incorporate existing roadway with new construction.
The North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) has said that the connector will provide an east-west link across Greenville to improve access between downtown and the PCMH/Health Science Campus, East Carolina University’s main campus and other businesses.
The project will include a bridge over the CSX Transportation Rail Line to reduce traffic interruptions.

Officials with the NCDOT are currently contacting property owners that will be affected by the project. The budget for right-of-way acquisitions is estimated at just $26.8 million.
The NCDOT has not advertised the final route on the website for the project. However, an earlier advertised preferred route (with a roadway bridge over the railroad) was estimated to require relocation for 10 homes and 11 businesses. An alternative route (with a roadway tunnel under the railroad) would relocate 10 homes and 13 businesses. Over 100 properties could be affected by this project.
