Article in the Reflector about the new China 10 restaurant on Firetower Road.
The Daily Reflector

The new Dunham Sports store at the mall looks to be almost finished. I was at the mall this weekend and they still had the storefront covered up but I could see a little bit of the inside and they already had stuff stocked on the walls.

NCDOT to Host Public Meeting for Proposed Widening of Evans Street/Old Tar Road


RALEIGH — The N.C. Department of Transportation will hold a public meeting on Tuesday, Nov. 19, regarding the proposed widening of Evans Street/Old Tar Road. The meeting will be held from 4 to 7 p.m. at the Pitt County Shrine Club, 569 Irish Lane in Winterville.

Citizens may stop by at their convenience; there will not be a formal presentation. NCDOT representatives will be available to answer questions and receive comments. Public input will be taken into consideration as work on the project develops.

The purpose of the meeting is to present information on how widening a 3.8-mile section from Cooper Street/Worthington Road to Greenville Boulevard will provide additional capacity and improve traffic flow. In addition, the improvements will increase the level of safety for motorists and pedestrians.

The existing two-lanes will be widened to four 12-foot lanes with a 23-foot median, curb and gutter, sidewalks, and possibly bicycle lanes. The project is currently scheduled for right of way acquisition in 2018 and construction in 2020. These dates are tentative and are subject to change.

Great! Glad to hear it. I'll have to take a look at the progress this weekend when I come to Greenville!

This sounds promising...a divided median, sidewalks and even maybe bike lanes...compare to the rest of Evans going downtown, where you have the standard "substandard" ENC 5-lane highway. Maybe they should have included a road diet for the rest of Evans in the project to make it ALL safe.

And for anyone attending...make the point of bike lanes where you could theoretically ride a bike from Downtown Winterville to Downtown Greenville if they are installed...and the road diet comes to the rest of Evans eventually. Does Greenville have a bike plan?

Information about the Dickinson Avenue Market and Planning Study

It will (hopefully) include:

To turn Dickinson Avenue into a commercial corridor and gateway to the city.

It will focus on the road from Reade Circle to 14th Avenue.

Analyze the potential for the area to support new office, Tech, Institutional uses, and residential uses.

Public/private investment such as a Technology Transfer facility

Advance manufacturing center/park at the Imperial Tobacco site

Passenger rail station

Feasibility/Development of the Millennial Campus, which is ECU's Warehouse District. The 20 acre site could house the Performing Arts Center and Work/Life Center

Adaptive re-use options for UNX/Ficklen building
-----

This is feasibility/cloud 9 stuff. But it would be pretty awesome for it to all work.

If the area acquires more residents and things really get going downtown, I think a good idea for UNX would be a fresh food market and Ficklen being lofts.
