112 beds, revenue of 270 million, profit of over 4 million
Iím surprised UNC hasnít beaten Vidant to it. Theyíve been aggressive in taking over hospitals and clinics in recent years.

Seems like both Hospital systems are moving in the same direction. I think Vidant focuses really on more of the rural health care though...places like Bertie, Ahoskie, Edenton, Washington...Halifax seems to fit with that group more than Kinston, Goldsboro and Rocky Mount.

It will be interesting to see who goes where as it continues to play out.

The N.C. Department of Transportation continues work on a bypass in Pitt County, which is expected to relieve congestion and improve safety in the area. Starting late this month, crews will close a road as pa​rt of that future freeway project.

Bell Arthur Road in Greenville will be closed from 7 a.m., April 29, through November. During the closure, the contractor will replace a box culvert.

While Bell Arthur Road is closed, traffic will be detoured onto U.S. 13/264A and Nash Joyner Road.

This construction is part of the Southwest Bypass, which will be a four-lane, 12.6-mile freeway between two miles south of Ayden on N.C. 11, wrapping around the west side of Ayden and Winterville and ending at the U.S. 264 Bypass, west of Greenville. The new highway should open in 2020.

Drivers should anticipate needing extra time through November and should use caution when approaching the work zone.

Finally a little info about the Imperial site:

A grant has been awarded to help clear out a former tobacco facility that caught fire back in 2008.


NC House Representative Kandie Smith shared the news that a $150,000 grant has been awarded to assist in the demolition of buildings and concrete pads at the site of the former Imperial Tobacco Company facility in Greenville.

The more than 8 acre site is in the downtown area adjacent to the Dickinson Avenue arts and innovation district.

Assistant City Manager Ken Graves says he hopes this grant will help create economic opportunities at the site. "It's a good opportunity to see a little bit more, more development and looking at office and seeing if we can get some more office and job creation."

Graves says the city will now look for bids from companies to help demolish buildings on the site and then will look for potential developers.

The City of Greenville is still under a cyber attack two weeks after it happened.

Hackers have demanded ransom in order to get the city's systems back up and running. Greenville Mayor PJ Connelly said the city is operating as normal even though many of the 750 city computers still have a ransomware virus.

The ransom virus is called Robbinhood. This malicious software targets large networks and blocks access until money is paid. That dollar amount could be per computer or the entire network.

Connelly did not comment on how much the ransom is or if the city paid it since it's under investigation by the FBI. He says essentially every computer has to be restarted from a backup. According to Connelly, there's no timeline as to when all the computers will get back up and running.

"I can tell you my email is up and running today," Connelly said. "I'm very fortunate, so we're getting back and communicating with the public. But you know the city is working very hard. It may be a little more difficult to do business with the city, but you know, we continue to take police reports and everything that's associated with running the business."

Connelly said he does not believe that personal information has been compromised. Also, if you try to go to the city website, you'll still receive an error message.

I noticed a few days ago that the old Hu Hot on Greenville Blvd. has a "Coming Soon" banner on it but the banner has been folded by the wind so you can't read the name of whatever is coming soon.

Does anyone know what it is?

Regarding the Imperial site, did the city council not accept any of the proposals? The end of the video said the city would send out bids for redevelopment as if we havenít seen anything yet + as I was looking yesterday for the Imperial website page, an error kept appearing.

The N.C. Department of Transportation will perform a Ďmarathon weekendí of construction, working around the clock for one weekend, as part of the 10th Street Connector project.

After the evening rush hour, at 7 p.m. on April 26, NCDOT will close the intersection of Memorial Drive and Stantonsburg Road. Crews will reopen the Greenville intersection by 5 a.m. April 29. These dates are weather permitting.

The NCDOT will raise the elevation of the intersection by wedging the intersection with asphalt, preparing it for the final layer of asphalt. Closing the intersection is needed because of the amount of asphalt that has to be placed and for the safety of the workers, as well as the public.

Traffic will be detoured onto Arlington Boulevard, Dickinson Avenue and N.C. 43/ 5th Street. The streets between Arlington Boulevard and 14th Street should allow access for all businesses and residents to be maintained.

This work is part of the 10th Street Connector project. Once the project is completed, it will transform the Greenville road into a four-lane divided road with a landscaped median that directly links Memorial Drive to 10th Street at Evans Street.

Looks like its still there....with the proposals listed...

https://www.greenvillenc.gov/governm...te-development

Glad they are cleaning it up, and found $150K to do it. Its obvious this stuff takes time...maybe the developers told the City they needed to find money to clean it up to make it a more cost effective project. Still hoping for a hotel as part of the redevelopment...that should be #1 on the City's agenda, because office type projects can go over near the Town Common as well. I think a hotel next to the Dickinson corridor and ECU's Millennial campus would be a good spot.
