Fire Tower Road and Portertown Road Widening

Project #U-5785, U-5870
Type: Road Widening
Affected County: Pitt


The North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) has proposed to widen Fire Tower Road – from Charles Boulevard (N.C. 43) to Portertown Road – and Portertown Road – from Fire Tower Road to 10th Street (N.C. 33) – in Greenville to improve traffic flow and reduce congestion as well as to reduce crashes and enhance connectivity.

The overall project is divided into two projects: Project U-5785 and Project U-5870.

Project U-5785 would widen a 0.6-mile stretch of Fire Tower Road from Charles Boulevard to 14th Street. This project is estimated to cost $6.2 million.

Project U-5870 involves widening Fire Tower Road to Portertown Road and then widening Portertown Road to 10th Street, a distance of 2.2 miles.  This project is estimated to cost $23.8 million.

Right of Way Acquisition is expected to begin in late 2018, with construction starting in 2020.
