It's been posted on here before, but you could click the DOT link, click the plan link, then the divisional link that includes Pitt County. The bypass will attach to 264's Washington exit and run south to Ayden.

The construction ends at Jacksontown Rd where Minges Pepsi is.

Here's a quicky map from Pitt County's OPIS website. OPIS

can someone explain what this bypass will help with...I'm sure it's needed, but I'm having a hard time following it to be honest, I feel like an idiot. What destination city can I get to quicker by taking said bypass from Greenville. Like can I get to Atlantic Beach faster?

Its to alleviate traffic on Memorial Drive. The real benefit of the Southwest bypass is the ability to get to the Hospital area and Industrial area without going down Memorial if you are coming from the South. Consider that those two destinations are more regional in nature.

And probably the most important connection is the Forlines Rd connection, which will allow traffic from Winterville to get to 264 West without using Memorial Drive/Allen Rd.

It will be nice for people in Winterville or Ayden trying to go west. I live in Winterville and take old 264 through Farmville to get to 264 (freeway) west. It's way faster than going through town. The GPS even suggests that route.

Why don't you take Frog Level to Kinsaul-Willoughby Rd? That puts you right at a ramp to get on 264. The faster I can get to that 70 MPH road the better it is. It's only a few miles and a much more direct route. Alt-264 takes you south and then back north again. Frog Level is basically the same route as the new SW bypass will take.

According to the Googs that takes 5 minutes longer, which I would say is correct. Too much development and lower speed limits out that way. There's pretty much no one on 264 through Farmville and the speed limit is pretty high.

Posted on Facebook by Mayor Allen Thomas this morning...

"$50,000,000 Fund to Revitalize Entire Neighborhoods---at Work in Greenville.*
2 years ago I called the State Employees Union Leadership in Raleigh. Had heard about an idea---interest of Credit Unions to invest their money in urban home renewal.
A year later Greenville, Greenville, North Carolina and Durham, NC where chosen as Beta Sites to Launch a $50,000,000 Fund to purchase blocks of dilapidated homes and foreclosures to rebuild & revitalize* entire urban blocks in cities with new homes.
We Launched an aggressive program to take these refurbished homes clustered in revitalized blocks--- and empower tax-paying properties. Turn renters of these new properties into new home owners. Take-back these blighted neighborhoods and revive entire city blocks with local contractors private sector money.*
Happy to report PROJECT REVITALIZE is well under way with multiple properties rebuilt and 25 targeted for rebuild in the near future. Amazing what can be done in 2 YEARS when the right partners get in the same room and a plan is put into action.
THANK YOU SECU for agreeing to take on this game-changing venture and your partnership enabling Greenville & Durham--- as your launch cities.*"
