I suspect it could be a while. I think they're going to raise the bridge and the approaches to it. Every time there's a major rain event that bridge is closed due to flooding. There is a bridge replacement budgeted for that bridge.

If you go to this website you can look at road closures in the Greenville/Winterville area and from what it says (this road is part way down in the log) it says it will be closed until Sept. 23rd. Glad they are taking care of it but surprised they didn't start sooner if it was going to take that long. I live in the area but don't have kids but I suspect that it will really make things difficult for the High School Students if it runs into Sept.

And just for those who don't know, you if you have to go on that road from Old Tar you can keep going south past Worthington on Old tar and you will quickly see Laurie Ellis Road on your left. If you go left there it will run over into County Home Road which will get you back up to Worthington. Check the map on this site to see what I'm talking about. Just thought I would pass along.

The entire Convention Center or just the Visitor Center part of it?

I believe it was mistake to originally locate the convention center anywhere but downtown. It ensured there be no hotels there (or much else). Worst part of the planning for it was that it was being planned while the the last remnants of the tobacco industry were closing their doors in Greenville. What did they think would become of downtown if they didn't find new ventures for downtown? Putting the convention center in the retail area only ensured nothing would happen downtown, and it's made it more difficult to attract people and businesses downtown. It's pretty telling that no real estate agencies have offices in downtown Greenville. I hope the above statement comes to fruition.

The CVB office/Visitor's Center is all that is moving.

I'm glad they didn't put the convention center downtown. The idiots that run things would have preferred we all park elsewhere and walk to it. Parking is bad enough downtown.

Here is the best part about that call:

We are going to have a new three story (or more?) building. I'm not sure how many people work in the Visitors Bureau, but any new relocation of this type is wonderful news.

Any idea on the location? I thought I read it would be on the eastern side of the 400 block of Evans, but nothing is 0.2 acres, and there is only one open location.

I am currently looking for a parcel of land that fits that criteria, but no luck yet.

It is that parcel(s) I wrote about earlier, 423 Evans St. It currently is that open space on the 400 block of Evans. The hope is to add office, residential and possibly even some retail on the first floor, in addition to the Visitors Bureau.
