Washington-Greenville greenway feasibility study nearing completion

GREENVILLE, N.C. (WITN) – A feasibility study looking into a greenway between two Eastern Carolina cities is expected to wrap up this summer.

Sam Singleton, director of the Mid-East Rural Planning Organization, says that the feasibility study of a Washington-Greenville greenway is still in-progress but expected to finish this summer.

Singleton says they are in the process of setting up two public meetings for April. One meeting will be in Washington and the other in Greenville.

The meetings are expected to be scheduled in the next week or two.

An announcement of the feasibility study came back in January of last year.

In that announcement, it was said that the greenway would be a 20+ mile greenway connecting the two cities and be part of the East Coast Greenway Coastal Route and N.C. Bicycle Route 2.

The greenway would connect to the existing greenway in Greenville.

The Mid-East Rural Planning Organization is an arm of the North Carolina Department of Transportation.
