So not only is Arlington and Evans going to be milled/resurfaced, but 10th St from the intersection of Evans to Dickinson Ave. will be milled/resurfaced as well. Construction should begin around September 10, 2012 and be completed at the latest by November 30, 2012. The traffic lanes will not be closed from 6:00 AM to 8:00 PM everyday, so that is good.

Anyone been on 43 lately? The new bridge is in use. Two newly paved outside lanes are being used. They still need to pave the inner two lanes. Hopefully a median is constructed as well. Are they going to build another bridge, in the previous place of the old bridge? So the lanes will split?

There was just a minor change to those rules in the latest transportation bill passed in June. Localities can spend their TA money (Transportation Alternatives) which is 2.5% of the total that they get from the Feds, on anything that they want, including center turn lanes, if they can justify that it promotes cleaner air.

Anyone have any input on the inter modal bus station or the amtrak service coming? I want what is best for greenville and really i seems like these two projects would really on benefit Greenville if a rail line was connected to greenville. Is this correct? Any news would be appreciated.

Winslow Pointe has broken ground on Hooker Road at the intersection with Ridge Pl.

Interested to see how yet more development in the floodplain affects downstream flooding of Green Mill Run. The problems at/near 14th and Charles will only get worse.

Also interesting to note that the anticipated groundbreaking had been November, 2012. It seems to me the early start may indicate less resistance was met by the developer on a local governmental level than is typically expected with a project such as this. Or perhaps it was just quicker securing of financing that led to an early groundbreaking. Anyone have input on this?

I think the article said that Amtrak would like to have a dedicated bus line to Greenville to pick up passengers and take them to the Amtrak station in Wilson.

Yes. There will be a bus that run from Wilson to Morehead City and back every day, with a stop in Greenville. The bus stop on Reade Street will be the pick up/drop off area.

I found where the new bankruptcy court will be located!

1900 Reade Circle, which is the former Pirates Landing apartment complex. The target completion date/occupancy date is the last day in 2013, with a 15 year lease.
