Name of RFP: RFP: Southwest Bypass Corridor Land Use Plan
RFP Details / Description
Pitt County, North Carolina is seeking a qualified and experienced consulting firm to assist with the preparation of a Southwest Bypass Corridor Land Use Plan. The plan will be a cooperative effort between Pitt County, the Greenville Urban Area MPO, the City of Greenville, the Towns of Ayden and Winterville, and the North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT). Pitt County and its municipal partners have continued to experience tremendous growth, and the Southwest Bypass has become a necessity to alleviate congestion and improve travel times from the City of Greenville to the southern portion of the County. The Bypass will present many development opportunities, particularly at major interchanges along the corridor. 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 municipalities along the corridor.
The Southwest Bypass has long been Pitt County’s highest priority transportation project in the North Carolina Transportation Improvement Program (TIP). The Bypass is a four-lane, 12.6 mile freeway that will begin at the US 264 Bypass west of Greenville, extend around the western side of Winterville, and will end approximately two miles south of Ayden on NC 11. The Bypass will relieve congestion and improve traffic safety in Greenville, particularly along NC 11 (Memorial Drive) and Stantonsburg Road (SR 1467). It will also provide improved access to Vidant Medical Center in Greenville, and will help improve travel time along the US 264/NC 11 corridor. Five interchanges are proposed along the Bypass at US 264, US 13/Dickinson Avenue, Forlines Road (SR 1126), NC 102, and NC 11. Construction of the Bypass began in September 2016 and is expected to be complete in mid-2019.
