looks like they are starting on the round-a-bout on portertown / firetower. They've had clearing limits staked out for awhile, today they were working on cutting down a few trees on the corner of Portertown. When finished this will really make a difference with traffic at that intersection...turning left onto Portertown is horrible & will only get worse with WalMart.

Also noticed a excavator at the gas station on the corner of Greenville Blvd. / Evans Street..the one that has been closed for awhile now. Wondering if they are going to tear it down or dig up the fuel tanks? Hoping they are tearing it down & building something else..or just expanding that bolden auto place since they seem to use that lot anyways.

^Correct, utility relocation has begun ahead of construction of the roundabout.

I see the state has denied funding for the dream park in west Greenville...now Rose Glover wants the City to fund the other $250,000 that won't be funded.

The Daily Reflector

I have to say - I was ok with this if the funding came through...but I'm not in favor of this without the funding. I don't think this dream park is going to make that section of town any better...just my opinion.

^ true, I'd rather the money be spent on programs to help those areas instead of a park wher murders, drug connects, and etc will occur. I'm really surprised no-one locally will donate the $250k or at least donate something towards it. I think Greenville is trying to take on too many areas at one to rehabilitate, first we should start downtown, and gradually fix those other areas as funding increases.

I was wondering what they were doing. I heard the rumors of a round a bout, which would be awesome if they people around here can figure out how to use it. I'm getting so sick of sitting there only to see the oncoming cars from turn right onto Firetower without figuring out how to turn their blinker on so that I know I can turn left.

I assume it will be done before Walmart is up though. Any confirmation on when they will start?

Exactly! Must of us don't know how to use them, must of us don't even know how to do a Four-Way, I don't know why they think a Roundabout would be genius. I personally love roundabouts but it's a little scary driving into one when other cars don't know what to do (this especially revelant at the roundabout by Best Buy, I can't tell you how badly I scream at the people who dont know how to use it for they almost made me have a accident on multiple occasions).

wow - the children's hospital is looking really nice. It's amazing what has happened on the medical campus area in the past 10 years...too bad the rest of the city hasn't maintained that growth...that seems to be picking back up slowly.

Any current rumors about a mall similar to North Hills in Raleigh coming to Greenville? That would be ideal, as many have discussed in prior posts.

The Childrens Hospital is coming along great! And regarding a shopping center similar to North Hills coming here hasn't been proposed or even thought of yet. If it were to be ever built, where do you think it will prosper at? I would've loved if the 11 Galleria (where Kohls, Dicks, etc are) was like that. But I think we are overdue for a project like that because now New Bern of all places is getting a multi-billion dollar project that seems like I will be sort of like North Hills from my understanding.
