Harvey Parkway Area Study
On March 1, 2021, NCDOT completed work to extend C.F. Harvey Parkway (N.C. 148) another 5.8 miles from N.C. 58 to N.C. 11 north of Kinston. This project improves connectivity in northern Lenoir County, as users can now travel between U.S. 70, N.C. 58 and N.C. 11 on the parkway. It is anticipated that the opening of the parkway extension will benefit the whole area, including Global TransPark and other nearby employment centers.
Lenoir County anticipates that the opening of the parkway will lead to increased interest in this part of the county. To ensure future development advance the long-term goals for the area, Lenoir County is in the process of creating an area plan around the new parkway. The plan will guide future land use and development decisions, addressing topics such as land use, economic development, infrastructure, and more. During this planning process, the County will collaborate with area stakeholders including the Global TransPark, businesses, local landowners and residents to ensure that the plan reflects all interests. This plan will seek to clarify the intended development pattern around the Parkway, make recommendations to formalize the development approval process and serve as a guide for infrastructure and quality of life investments. Public engagement opportunities will be announced on the Lenoir County website and will include a survey and public meetings.
