NC 43 South Land Use Plan


The NC 43 South Corridor Land Use Plan (PDF) was adopted by the Board of County Commissioners on May 3, 2021.  The intent of the land use plan is to ensure that future development is managed appropriately and is compatible with the long term plans for growth and development of the County and City along the corridor, particularly at major intersections and crossroads areas, such as Hollywood Crossroads, Cox Crossing, and Chicod.


The NC 43 South Land Use Plan was a cooperative effort between Pitt County, the City of Greenville, the Greenville Urban Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO), and the North Carolina Department of Transportation to develop a land use plan for the NC 43 South corridor. The NC 43 South corridor has experienced significant growth in residential and commercial development and proposed infrastructure improvements present many additional development opportunities. 

The study area for the NC 43 South corridor is approximately 9.5 miles in length, extending from Bells Fork Road in the City of Greenville to just south of the intersection with SR 1753 (Stokestown-St. Johns Road) in Chicod. NC 43 South is currently a 2-lane roadway, the northern end of which is within the City of Greenville’s planning jurisdiction and includes a center turn lane. NCDOT is proposing to widen the northern end of the corridor between Firetower Road and Worthington Road to a 4-lane, raised median, divided roadway (STIP Project No. U-5991). The study area also encompasses additional area to the east along Mills Road, including several properties that have been recently annexed by the City of Greenville.
