GREENVILLE, N.C. – Big changes could be coming for a heavily traveled highway in the east.

Greenville Mayor Allen Thomas tells us Highway 264 between Wilson and Greenville could become Interstate 264.

That was a topic of conversation Thursday when Thomas met with Kinston Mayor B.J. Murphy and the Mayor of Ayden, Steve Tripp. The city leaders are brainstorming ideas to improve transportation in the east.

Friday in Goldsboro they’ll join a coalition which represents 40 eastern counties to talk about transportation needs. Mayor Thomas tells us many state leaders are also expected to be there.
