Greensboro/Randolph Megasite        Mega Site Logo

The Triad region is pursuing an economic development opportunity that may bring thousands of new jobs to our community. The Greensboro-Randolph Mega Site is planned as the home for a major employer that would provide new manufacturing and supporting jobs, benefiting the entire region.

As part of the Greensboro-Randolph Mega Site, the City of Greensboro is beginning the design of water and sewer system improvements to serve the area. The new water and sewer pipelines are anticipated to be installed along the roadways.

Property owners who will be affected will be notified before construction begins. Please note that this entire process will take place over the next 2 years, with construction anticipated to begin in summer 2016.

Mega Site Duke Energy Study

posted 12/13/2016

Duke Energy has been conducting a siting study for a new transmission line corridor that they say will be needed to provide electricity from Duke Energy’s existing 100-kilovolt (kV) infrastructure to the megasite once a customer is secured. The study is performed by a team of scientists, planners and engineers who collect and analyze environmental, physical, real estate and land use information within the study area to identify potential transmission line corridors. The Alternate Corridor Evaluation and Comparison process is to select a corridor that will minimize impacts on homes, cultural resources, the community and the environment while meeting the legal and engineering requirements of the project.

Public involvement was an essential part of the transmission line siting study process. Community input at the public meetings helped to improve the process and provide a better result. Duke Energy expects to announce their selected route in the first quarter of 2017.

If you have questions or comments about a proposed route, contact Duke Energy at  or at the toll-free phone number, 1-800-365-8979.
