You are talking about this? Because I don't really see this helping from getting from Greenville to New Bern at all. I think you want all traffic from 43 to be diverted on to 11 where I highly doubt the eastern harvey parkway would ever be extended further east. 43 needs to be a expressway with some interchanges, and 11 as a freeway from Greenville to Kinston.

Maybe you are talking about this map that you think they will extend the harvey parkway east. The best bet would be going onto 43 and on to 17 and on to the neuse river bridge (New Bern US 70 US 17 bypass), because that's an additional 20 minutes you will get if you use 11. They were gonna plan to make a 43 connector with 17 to bypass Vanceboro, but that never happened yet.

My thoughts exactly. Another example of people choosing an indirect but better quality route are those going from Goldsboro to Greenville and vice-versa. I-795/US-264 is the preferred route (at least from Goldsboro) despite US-13 being direct since the road sucks.

Though unlike NC-43, NCDOT plans to upgrade US-13 to a median-divided expressway between Goldsboro and the Greene County line with construction beginning in the early 2020's.

Of course it would be cutting through wetlands and swamp and a nice chunk of River Park North, so it's probably not that feasible. But something similar to the MLK parkway in Wilmington would be great, IMO.
That would be perfect, because they are already doing planning to the existing Pitt and Greene bridges right now. I would love to see that happen, The MLK parkway was also built on the wetlands. (That might even help relief congestion on 5th street)

For our highway, let's add bike lanes and sidewalks and make it four-lane expressway or freeway (Maybe six if Greenville's population and excitement booms). The greenway plan is already going in progress, I would love to see Greenville get greenways to Winterville and Ayden!

It would also be a sister of the Greenville Blvd widening.

I would love to see a Jack In The Box here, they have good food. We have space for one, we don't have a single one here.

1. What do you all think of the concept of a “smart neighborhood” where Millennial Campus currently is?
2. What advice, if any can be provided, in regards to improving the current design of Millennial Campus?

With many companies across the country currently building new smart cities, Greenville and ECU has the opportunity of a lifetime to show how smart city technologies can be implemented within an existing neighborhood. We must stop with the thinking of the past of trying to catch up (in regards to infrastructure development) with our North/South Carolina peers, and instead think forward. Our city, with the right vision, can truly be a national leader in regards to implementing future technologies — LETS MAKE IT HAPPEN!.

Not exactly sure how that is relevant to my question; care to explain? I have no problem giving an answer once it’s explained why exactly you seem to be asking that.

From GarnetAndBlack, I am sounding a bit too ‘campaign-esque’ for C-D, and for that, I issue an apology to members that feel such a way. It’s no secret: I am interested in running for one office or another here in Greenville someday, and for that, I am genuinely interested in hearing what everyone here says, as I have been for years. Frankly, I felt the question(s) I recently posed were related to development — I assume the community thought otherwise. Regardless, you all are owed an apology; in no sense am I trying to pollute this thread we’ve all grown to love into some campaign HQ for myself, but rather I am interested, as I’ve been since the inception of this thread, in discussing development. Considering my own ambitions, I thought developing a more productive relationship with those up here would be beneficial for us all — somehow, someway, it’s not. Again, I apologize.
