Firetower Road Under Construction

But that's the scene many drivers say is repeated up and down Firetower Road in Greenville as Southern Pitt county experiences explosive growth. The Department of Transportation says an expansion project already underway should ease up the traffic flow at several points along that road. But DOT says progress comes with a price. During construction on Firetower Road transportation officials say drivers will lose a turn lane. The project is expected to be finished by April 2008. Additional lanes are also planned at the intersection of Corey and Firetower Roads.
