Greenville Transportation Activity Center to be named for Congressman Butterfield

GREENVILLE, NC (WITN) Efforts by one North Carolina Congressman to secure funding for a future transportation hub here in the east will have resulted in the building being named after him.

The Greenville City Council voted to name the Greenville Transportation Activity Center for First District Democrat Congressman G.K. Butterfield.

The project costs over $7.1 million -- with local funds making up $800,000.

The majority of funding is from federal transportation grants.

The hub will be located on South Pitt Street and Bonners Lane and will provide a centrally located transfer facility where local and regional transportation services can connect.

Construction is expected to be completed on the 9,500 square foot facility in the spring of 2018.
