Feasibility Study

The proposed Washington-Greenville Greenway is a 20-mile corridor in Beaufort and Pitt Counties connecting the existing South Tar River Greenway in Greenville and Downtown Washington. The proposed corridor follows the Tar River from the South Tar River Greenway, beginning at the Greenville Town Common and paralleling the Tar River to the Mac “Bear” Hodges Festival Park in Downtown Washington. The Washington-Greenville Greenway is a critical missing link in the regional greenway network and is the proposed corridor for segments of the East Coast Greenway’s coastal route. The Washington-Greenville Greenway Feasibility Study will evaluate potential route scenarios along roadways and off-road corridors to determine the preferred route. The study will also develop cost estimates and an implementation plan to construct the trail. 


The study is being conducted by the McAdams Company and managed by the Mid-East RPO. Key partners for the study include: NCDOT, Beaufort County, Pitt County, the City of Washington, the City of Greenville, and the Greenville Urban Area MPO.


About the East Coast Greenway: 

The East Coast Greenway is a 3,000-mile walking and biking route from Maine to Florida that connects major cities, small towns, and parklands along the Eastern Seaboard. In North Carolina, the ECG spine route passes through the cities of Durham, Raleigh, Fayetteville, and Wilmington, while the coastal route begins in Dismal Swamp State Park at the Virginia border and meanders along the coast passing through the cities of Greenville, Washington, and Jacksonville before connecting to the spine route in Wilmington. The ECG is currently 28% complete in North Carolina.
