As far as I know we are at the state's mercy to pave Dickinson

Like any rural city that wants to grow - Gville is left to beg the state to hurry up. Every major road in Greenville is a state highway. It's truly a cruddy situation - but it's the achilles heal of Greenville right now as it continues to grow out of its pants faster than it can buy new ones.

No, you're right. But it's a state led project that's still in the design phase. The state still has right of way rights, to my knowledge, for all of Dickinson Ave (officially the entire road is still considered US Route 13)

"Design Phase" is NCDOT code for "It'll be done in 15 years"

Edit: Whoops, nope. Dickinson becomes a part of 13 at the intersection of Memorial. Memorial is half a part of Route 13 and half just State Highway 11. Ridiculous. Greenville needs to gain right of way to these roads when the bypass opens.

For Dickinson, it's a city road from Memorial until it ends, but considered US-264 Alt E along US Route 13 from Memorial out of town. Looks like it'll be a partially paid for by the state, partially paid for by the city bonds that Thomas had to pull teeth to get councilmembers to understand that roads are more important right now than greenways.

Greenville has a lot of roads and only a certain amount of money for repaving. Fortunately the city is doing these projects the right way.

There's basically 3 ways to repave a asphalt street.

The first is the cheapest and doesn't last long. That is a simple "tar and chip" over the existing surface. The state does this on a lot of non primary side roads. On lightly used roads it can last up to 10 years but often doesn't last much more than 5 years.

The second way is better than tar and chip and that's where they lay a new layer of asphalt over the existing road surface. It's more expensive than tar and chip but it holds up better. You can expect this type of paving to last between 5 and 10 years before the defects that were paved over start to reappear in the road surface.

The best way is for the road to be reconditioned before paving. This is the most expensive job but it lasts the longest, 20 to 30 years can be expected. Reconditioning includes grinding down the old asphalt surface to make a very smooth bed for the new asphalt. They will also fix any defects like potholes and raise or lower the manhole covers.

Greenville is using the third method for repaving most roads. It is doing the work right now and the list includes 33 streets. Here is a list of them:

The first name is the street to be paved. The second and third names are the from and to streets. So the first to be paved would be Independence Blvd from N. Memorial to the End Maintenance point.

The first number is the square yards of road surface to be milled. The second number is the tons of asphalt used to repave the street. The third number is the thickness of the new asphalt layer in inches.

I don't know if this has already been discussed, but Grumpy's Pub has open in the old Levels location on 5th street. I looked at their pictures on Instagram and it seems pretty nice inside!

The Boundary owners said it would open on time for the upcoming semester. I hope they're working overtime.

NBPirate, their Instagram name is grumpyspub111. I actually went last night. It is very nice compared to what it used to look like inside. It reminded me of a hotel bar. The lights were very bright and the music wasn't very loud. The male employees uniform is black pants, white dress shirt and a black bow tie... I thought that was a little cheesy. It's definitely a different feel from all the other places downtown which is nice.

Speaking recently about Longleaf Brewery,

They have officially changed the name to Trollingwood Taproom & Brewery

I like the original name, but it appears there may have been legal issues with the name so they had to change it.
