NC 43 South Land Use Plan

ABOUT THE PLAN

The NC 43 South Land Use Plan is 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 is experiencing significant growth in residential and commercial development and the proposed infrastructure improvements will present many additional development opportunities.  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.

The study area for the NC 43 South corridor is approximately 9.5 miles in length, extending from Charles Boulevard 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 Charles Boulevard and Worthington Road to a 4-lane, raised median, divided roadway (STIP Project No. U-5991).  The study area is also anticipated to include additional area along Worthington Road and Mills Road at their intersection with NC 43 South.
